View Full Version : seeking information

I am seeking any information, on the Pernu family, that came from Finland, in the late 1600's or earlier.

My great grandpa, Adolph Pernu, came from finland. I seek any information on him and his parents.

Any other information will be very welcome.

Hi Harlan,
Just checking if you really mean late 1600īs or if it is a typo... In case it is a typo, there is one Adolf Johansson Pernu b.1869, a laborer from Lohtaja, who takes a passport to Northern America twice in 1888, 10th Jan and 13th June. He leaves his parents in Finland. No passenger record in Finland available online. Passport record from www.migrationinstitute.fi
