View Full Version : Irja Irene Salo

The Minnesota Death Index has a Irja Irene Salo, 22 Aug 1993. Her date of birth 19 Apr 1915 is the same as my grandmother's niece's, Irja Irene Korvo. She was daughter of Karl Einar Korvo and Iines Irene Kaneva.
Does anyone have information on possible children?

On Ancestry I found the following information, but found nothing on any children. Hopefully you don't already have this info. It appears Irja Irene married a Melvin Salo, b. 4 Feb. 1916, d. 16 Oct. 2001.

Thank you Denise,
I do have access to Ancestry, so I have this information. Except for the Public Records File which I hadn't seen. I'm almost certain that Irja Irene Korvo and Salo are the same person. However I don't have the same certainty about Melvin.
