View Full Version : Pantti/Panttila (Kauhajoki?)

I am looking for any information on Markku Pantti b. ?. I believe he came from the Kauhajoki area, specifically Panttila. He married Annie Ellisu b.?. Children are Ivari Pantti b.1884, Maria Pantti b. 1880, Constu Pantti b? This is as far back as we know. Ivari imigrated to Michigan in the US.

Any info would be appreicated,

Thanks Denise - Some new info on Ivar, ie... draft card. I found his immigration info from Ellis Island and we know about his children. Not sure about sibling Helma but this is the kind of info we are looking for. If anything else comes up I appreciate the info.

Thanks again,
