Hi June,
When I was helping my cousin trace her Kentala ancestors, there was someone on the list who mentioned some Kenta(la)s that were in Houghton/Hancock area. I want to say it was Alicia, but I may be wrong. Hopefully they'll see your message and be able to help.

I've been in touch with Svein about this group. They are very elusive.

Alicia has been doing research on them as well. No one seems to be making much headway, dagnabit.

I sent off an email to seurakunta Alatornion, but haven't heard a peep out of them. Any other suggestions welcome.

Yes, Alicia has been trying to help the family, bless her. The last I heard was that someone from Norway was coming over to do some searching. I think Alicia probably knows the latest.

Yes, a family member is coming here to see if he can find anything.I have beat myself silly looking for this family. They had so many names attached i have not been able to figure out what last name they may have taken.Isaacson/Johnson/ Abramson are a few, all common here.
His query was also in the FAR newspaper with no results.

Please check out Rikki's post. That's one of the sources for ancestors born in the Tornio River area.
