I am looking for these two brothers who emigrated to Canada.

Kaarlo Mauritz Boelius b. 22.9.1880 Finland d. 17.6.1938 Canada, to Canada 1911 - 1913 ?

Yrjö F (George) Boelius b. 4.10.1894 Finland d. ? canada,
to Canada 1924 - 1926 ?

In my records is mentioned:
Kaarlo Boelius
Yrjö Boelius
Selina Boelius (Kaarlo's wife)

Cemetery: Sointula
Location: Malcom Island
Region: Vancouver Island

I only know that Kaarlo lived in Hydes Creek ; British Columbia, Canada

I am searching information on their stay in Canada.

From the 1911 Census of Canada
Elonen, Gus, boarder, born May 1885, 26, Finland, emigrated 1911, carpenter on bridges
From the WWI Draft Registration
Kustav Arthur Elonen
7 May 1884 age 34
519 Maple Ave Los Angeles, CA
carpenter in San Bernadino
nearest relative Charlie ?oinen? half-brother camp #3 Vancouver, BC, Canada
attached is Draft card imagThere is another Gus Elonen in California, about same age, but he came to US in 1900 and was a grocer.
Even though there is a years difference in the two Gustaf's, I think they are the same person, both carpenters, half brother in Canada. Couldn't find him in Cleveland, but it could be later.

Thank you very much Karen

I think that now I found "my" Kustaa Elonen. I noticed that there was his signature in the registered card and I have some old post cards from Elonen with his signature. I checked signatures and I think that they match.

I have a photo from Kust Elonen , too. He has sent several post cards to my grandfather's mother Amanda Lindgren. He has used names like A.Elonen ,Kustaa Elonen and Kusti Elonen.

Kind regards Jaana
