There seems to be a lot of Tyyska´s in USA, but I am
only interested in of the following people:

Children of Fredrik Siiskonen and Vilhelmina Tyyska:
Karl, Hilja, August, Edvard, and Rauha born 1890-1899 in Mikkeli, Finland,
emigrated USA about 1900-1910 and stayed first in New York area.

Also sister and brother of Vilhelmina: Fredrika Tyyska 1867
and Israel Tyyska 1870 and brother Konstantin´s sons
Gabriel Tyyska 1886 and Aleksander Tyyska 1870 emigrated
to same area.

Do somebody know what happened to them?

Hi,
The surname "Siiskonen" has been misspelled in transcription, and therefore has been difficult to find as well as the "Tyyska" surname. So far, I just found Rauha's passenger record. I'll keep searching for you. :)

Hi,
Do you have an idea who this Emil Siiskonen is? It appears Emil was employed on this ship as a crew member. When putting in the name Karl Siiskonen for a search on Ancestry, it listed this as Karl, but when looking at the actual passenger record, it has the person listed as Emil! :confused: I'll try searching for Emil Siiskonen, and see if they got Karl and Emil's manifest mixed up.

Hi,
There are many passenger records on Emil Siiskonen, and he did various jobs on the ships as a crew member. His father was M. Siiskonen in Mikkeli. Here is another example of a record for him.

Ancestry has an Israel Tyyska in the NY County Supreme Court Naturalization Records 1907-1924 and his wife Ruka, living at 97 9th Ave., 26 Jul 1911.
MN Naturalization Records 1854-1957 shows a Gabriel Tyyska in Duluth county, reel 21, code 55, vol. 23, pg. 442.
I found an Alex Santener (Santer) Tyyska in the MN Naturalization in Virginia cty. reel 6, code 213, vol. 11, pg. 397. Unfortunately, these records don't give any more info online.

Denise and Karen. Thanks for you help! The records you found match to
the persons that I am looking for. The sailor Emil does not belong to them
nor anyone in the long list.
