I am searching for ancestors of my Great Grandparents from Finland:

Jaako Matinpoika (Ojanpera?) Niemi
b. 4 Aug 1854
Jurva,Vaasa,Finland
d. 14 Nov 1931
Jurva,Vaasa,Finland

m. 13 Dec 1885 Jurva,Vaasa,Finland

to:

Anna Lisa Pera Eliaksentytar
b. 10 Nov 1855
Jurva,Vaasa,Finland
d. 29 Oct 1926
Jurva,Vaasa,Finland

My Grandfather, Victor Jacob Olson (original name was Jaako Vihtori Ojanpera/ Niemi, came to America and settled in Quincy,Massachusetts in the early 1900's (before 1916).

He married Marie Matilda Haapakoski (the family shortened the last name to "Koski" once in the USA) in Quincy,Massachusetts in about 1916.

I am also looking for the ancestors of Marie Matilda Haapakoski, but I will do a different post for them later on.
