Hi,
I thought this would be an easy one, but find I'm stuck and need some help.
I am searching for my great-grandmother, Alma Elisabet Kankaanpää, b. 1886parents and siblings. On funeral home records in Calumet, Michigan, parents were noted as being Sam Kangas (I'm guessing Samuel Kankaanpää) and Maria Kulmala. Church records also from Calumet, Michigan, state Alma was from Polvijärvi. I have found Alma Elisabet Kankaanpää's passport and passenger record on the Migration Institute which state Jalasjärvi as her home parish and the birthyear and immigration date match the censuses I've found in Michigan. I also found a Samuel Nikolai Kankaanpää's passport and passenger record on the Migration Institute, which I hope is her father. Attached are the records I found. I have also checked Talko and HisKi without results. Thank-you in advance for your efforts in this query! :D

Best Regards,
Denise

Denise,

I searched HisKi and found a Maria Kulmala listed.

MARIA GUSTAVA KULMALA
born: 2.1.1852 Jalasjärvi
christened: 4.1.1852
father: nyb. Michel Jonaesson Kulmala
mother: Ulrika Salomonsdotter (age:30-35)

I could not find anything on HisKi on the farmname of Kankaanpää prior to 1870's (burial records only) The name is also found in parish's nearby to Jalasjärvi

The name Kankanpää (house #91) does exist in the Finnish parish of Polvijärvi. But looking through the 1880 census register, i could not see any Samuel Nikolai listed.

hope this little bit helps!

Hi John,
Thank-you for the information on Maria Kulmula. Just in the past couple days, I have received information that Alma Elisabet Kankaanpää's parents were Samuel Nikolai Hermannipoikä Piikkilä, Kankaanpää, and mother Maria Sofia Vilhelmintytär Gröndahl, Piikkilä. I'm still waiting on further information to confirm this, as I have a death record of Alma Elisabet stating date of birth was 3 July 1886 and the new information I have received has birthdate as 7 March 1886, which is the month and day switched. I'm a bit confused also because the surname for her mother that I had obtained from the funeral home, her death record and the church she belonged to in Calumet, Michigan was Kulmula, and not Gröndahl. When I get further confirmation, I will post it to Finlander Forum. Thank-you for researching this query for me. I truly appreciate your help.

Best Regards,
Denise
