I am looking for relatives of the following ancestors of mine:

Tobias Puukangas, Katie Kaisa Juntenen, Zacharies Fremling & Anna Santapakka (or Santapalla - I've seen it both ways).

If you have information on or are an ancestor of any of these people, I'd love to hear from you.

Are you looking for these names in Finland or the US or where? The Puukangas name was found in Kelviċ in the 1800s. Are you aware of the Fremling website: http://fremling.com/

Hi Scooterino,
On Ancestry.com I am finding information, but what do you already know? It would be helpful if you could give more information on your ancestors to be sure I have the correct families. I have found for example;

Zacharies Fremling b. 19.01.1858 Kemi, Finland d. 17.02.1958 Brainerd, Minnesota married to Anna Santapalla b. 14.02.1866 Kalajoki, Finland d. 06.12.1950 Brainerd, Minnesota. They had a daughter, Alma Sylvia Fremling b. 17.01.1909 Cass County, Minnesota, d. 18.04.1988 Brainerd, Minnesota. Alma Sylvia was married to Nestor Leander Jokela and they had a son named David Lyle Jokela, b. 13.08.1947 Crow Wing, Minnesota.

Best Regards,
Denise :)

No, I wasn't. I will check that out, thanks! I'm looking for relatives either in the U.S. or Finland.

I am on Ancestry, so you may be seeing some of my tree. But, some of your info seems to clash with mine. According to my grandmother, her grandparents were Zacharies Fremling & Anna Santapakka (I see someone else has it in their tree as Santapalla - I don't know which is correct). They had a daughter Caroline Fremling, who was my grandmother's mother. I don't know who Alma Sylvia is and I thought Caroline was an only child, but I may be mistaken. My grandmother (Doris Kusi, daughter of Caroline Fremling & John Karl Hill) doesn't have much memory left, but she had no problems remembering the names of her grandparents, and even told me that they came from Kalajoki Finland, so it certainly sounds like the same people. I'm going to check out the Fremling website suggested below too.

Hi Scooterino,
Do you have full access on Ancestry.com? If so, Tobias Puukangas is on there in a family tree, and has ancestry both before and after his birth including spouse, parents, children, etc.

Yes, Tobias is on my family tree, and I've traced backwards a few more generations from him. For the Puukangas family, I'm more looking for living relatives to connect with.

Hi Scooterino,
On the Institute of Migration, I found the name Santapakka from Kalajoki. I am guessing the person with the other family tree on Ancestry probably found a passenger record or something and the K's appeared to be L's and they assumed it was Santapalla, so I bet it was Santapakka. Here's the names on the Institute of Migration that I've found for passports. And below these are passenger records for Santapakka. If you don't have a subscription to the Institute of Migration and you want me to post the records they have, let me know which ones you want.
