I've been reading some of the posts here and I'm hoping to get some help with my families and maybe help someone else along the way. Would like to find someone related to me. I've found quite a bit of info but no living family !!

Looking for info on....my Grandfather Isak Kanniainen [ Kan or Kann in U.S.]
Born Dec. 11, 1860 in Haapa Village, Temmes, Oulu. Parents.. Juho Johanss Kanniainen and Maria Haapa [ Haapa Pertula ]. Isak was married before 1888 in Finland and had a son Abram born about 1888 in Finland. His wife is believed to have died after Isak went to the U.S. in 1888. Abram came with Isak's mother Maria in 1894. She was a widow and brought her son Henry and a Daughter Johanna with her also. Would like to find Isak's wife and also a possible dau. believed to have died in Finland also, name and dates unknown.

Will post more later on the other forum. Thanks in advance for any help.
