View Full Version : Kortesoja - Nyrhilä - Järvenpää - Ainali

This is a repeat of my previous message under a new thread - title and in the Genealogy (ENG) forum. I could not get the title changed without this new thread. I was hoping that my family names in the title might help my search request. I apologize if this repeat is inappropriate.

In my first post I mentioned by grandparents - Juho Kortesoja (Nurmo), Amanda Nyrhilä (Lapua), Matti Järvenpää (Tiistenjoki), Gustava Saralampi Ainali (Himanka). Does anyone have links to these family lines? Should I add the previous generations to broaden the search?

Thank you - Eldon Oja from Thunder Bay, Canada

Is my great grandmother´s brother. I have made some research in Tiistenjoki, Lapua. Jaakko Matinpoika's family has lived in this area since 1550. There is a village called Paavola in Tiistenjoki.

Johanna - I misread your link to the Paavola family. It is likely through Matti Erkinp. Paavola 25 February 1813 Tiistenjoki and Anna Esant. Marttila 05 September 1815 Lapua. They had 11 children.
Erkki 1837, Heikki 1839, Matti 1840, Juho 1842, Esa 1843, Juho 1845, Yrjö 1848, Maria 1849, Kustaa 1852, Jaakko 1854 (from my previous posting), and Kustaa 1856

Yes that is correct. Maria 1949 and her husband Yrjö Kustaa Luhta 1841 are my great grandparents. You have more information about these families than I. Seems that my family tree is growing. Whoo!
