I'm looking for Antti Lehtikangas. He was born 16.11.1882 in Vihanti, Finland. He left from Finland 10.1.1914 and arrived to America 24.1.1914 to New York, NY. He moved to his friend Kosti Leppänen who lived on Chester Depot, Vermont. I founded Ancestry.com Minnesota Naturalization Record, where was that Antti Lehtikangas named person lived in Virgian County, Minnesota. I'm not 100% sure is that same person but I'm think it is.

Antti's father was Matti Matinpoika Lehtikangas and mother Mathilda Matintytär Lehtikangas nee Perälä. It would be really nice that if i can get new information from this lost relative.

You can search Minnesota birth and death records at this site:

I did a quick search, but I could not find anyone by that name who either died or had children in Minnesota.

I see 3 Lehtikangas surnames with Social Security numbers that start with:

371 [= Michigan] Leonard Lehtikangas - Rock Michigan 10 Sep 1919 - Aug 1986
381 [= Michigan] John Lehtikangas - no city 01 Jan 1882 - May 1973
371 [= Michigan] Victor Lehtikangas - no city 14 Apr 1888 - Jul 1963

One never knows.

Rock is in the Upper Peninsula.

According to Antti Lehtikangas' passport on Migration Institute, he was born 16.11.1885, not 1882.

Yep Karen, you are right. It is year 1885 not 1882. Thanks :)

Is there anykind Minnesota state archives where can get information?

Because I'm thinking that Antti changed his name or he did go to different state or Canada.

Kivinen1, where you find that information?

My uncle have found that another Andrew Kangas was mining man who lived in Michigan. So can these two person be same person?

Here is the link to the Washington State Digital Archives:

Just enter a first name and last name, or even just a last name and first initial.

Have fun.
