Hi everyone,I am a new member and very excited to maybe meet some one who has heard of my family. I just started researching my grandfather's family. my grandfather Mathew Matheson was born in Calumet mi. in 1900, his mother's maiden name was Hannah Lappi and I believe she was born in one of two places in Finland. The towns in question are Kittila and Kangasniemi,she was born in the year 1876, her father's name was mathew lappi, her mother was unknown. I do not know for sure what year he immgrated from Finland to Calumet, mi. If anyone has any info I would be grateful or could tell me where to get started. thanks Sandy
