Do you mean this Hilda Niemi:
Last name Niemi
First names Hilda
Age or age group 20
Port of departure Hanko
Place of destination Fitchburg
State of destination MA
Country of destination USA
Price of ticket FIM 231
Ship from Finland Arcturus
Date of departure from Finland 22.10.1910
Ship from England Numidian
Date of departure from England 28.10.1910
Ocean Line State Line
Port of departure in England *
List and page 84/76
Remarks Kokkola!

She seems to come from Halsua, this is from Boston passenger lists in Ancestry. Halsua birth records in Hiski suggest two candidates for this Hilda but neither is a match for the dob you have:

24.4.1890 1.5.1890 Torp. Juha Juhanp. Huhtaniemi Emilia Aapramintr. 25 Hilta Evelina

8.6.1890 15.6.1890 Tal. Jaakko Antinp. Niemi Sofia Kustaava 25 Hilta Senja

There is a passport record that would match the name for the second one and the date of emigration but the dob is off again.

Last name Niemi
First names Hilda Senja
Other names *
Date of birth . .1895
Marital status 1
Religion Lut.
Occupation Itsell.
Home parish Halsua
Province VAA
Passport date 15.10.1910
Passport number 7159
Passport valid (year:month) 5:0
Destination Amerikka
Passport issued by VAA
Remarks *

Good luck to your research!

Thank you Merja for your help. I think the first one is the most suitable one as most records is ok to my informations. She could well be born 1890 as the US Census is very unrelaiable with birthrecords.
How can I find out who are her parents and other information?

I think you should contact the parish office of Halsua because the church records after 1900 are not available to the public in libraries etc. The address is:
Halsuan seurakunnan kirkkoherranvirasto
Köyhäjoentie 15 B
69510 HALSUA
e-mail: halsuan.seurakunta*evl.fi

You need to pay something for the certificate. I suggest you write down everything you know and ask for a Hilda Niemi who emigrated 1910, because we don´t know if either of the candidates I found are the correct person. She might have also moved to Halsua from somewhere else. F.ex. in the neighbouring parish of Kaustinen there is this Hilda:
25.4.1891 26.4.1891 Talok. Joonas Jaakonp. Peltoniemi Anna 41 Hilda Amalia
