I'm compiling information for a friend, and on the travel document traveling with his 40 year old great-great grandmother is a child with an odd name.

Last name Linkka
First names Jaiuro A.
Age or age group 8
Port of departure Hanko
Place of destination Sault Ste. Marie
State of destination MI
Country of destination USA
Price of ticket USD 35
Ship from Finland Arcturus
Date of departure from Finland 19.07.1902
Ship from England *
Date of departure from England 99.99.9999
Ocean Line Allan Line
Port of departure in England *
List and page 24/97
Remarks Mk Wilhelmina Talonen.

Does ANYONE have an idea about what the first name could really be? I've never seen Jaiuro as a name, and think it must have been a typo. I see that there are some Linkka and Linkkala names in HisKi.

Also, trying to figure out WHO this 8 year old boy (boy/girl?) is as far as why they were traveling on the same ticket.:confused:

p.s. Wilhelmina Talonen was living in Ikaalinen - Ikalis, prior to heading to North America.

Jari is the closest name I can think of. Or perhaps Jairo?

After going in circles I started looking at ship dates and realized that there is a weird possibility.


Johan A. Talonen that would be about 8 from Ikaalinen? That somehow got entered odd at Migration Institute? Then he would be traveling with his mother.

Last name Linkka
First names Jaiuro A.

Additional thoughts? Seen this type of thing before? Is it a really weird coincidence that Linkka is also a Finnish name?

Thanks again - Ilmari:)
