Hi Wayne,
Quite a while back I sent you my gedcom which included information of one of my great grandfathers, Matts Mattsson Granbacka b. 18.4.1886 Evijärvi and these last names are in his lineage. I believe these names you are searching for belong to the Keisari family. Try this link for further help on this line. http://koti.japo.fi/~keisari/
I have not worked on his line as he was my great grandmother's second husband and not a direct line for me.

Best Regards,
Denise :D

Hi Denise,
It's been awhile and doubt that I have that GEDCOM any longer. I too have lots of Söderenas & Karvonens in my database. If I had more information on the parents of Henrik Söderena & Anna Karvonen, I might be able to connect to individuals in my database and possible the Keisari database.

Hi Wayne,
Private message me your email address and I will forward the gedcom I have on Matts Mattsson Granbacka. It does not have the specific names you are searching for but has his lineage which includes Soderena, etc. names. It's too large to post on here.

Denise :)

Jaska has lots of data on Söderena, Keisari, etc. Evidently he is away or he would have replied. Maybe he'll see this when he returns.

On the Iron County GenWEB page are the death dates for several SODERENA. Anna 7/6/1959
Henry 3/23/1936
Mary 9/4/1935
Ralph 2/24/1959
Verner 8/13/1979. All buried in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery in Crystal Falls.
Anna's obit is found in the Diamond Drill July 16,1959, page 4. Lookups can be obtained through Harbour House Museum in Crystal Falls. I also have a contact in Crystal Falls who is married to a Soderena. She may be able to help you. Crystal Falls is my birth place. I'll PM you with her email address.

I see the family of Henry and Anna in Crystal Falls in 1930. Children at home listed as Ralph 14, Verner 12 and June 7. I also found that marriage for E Henry Soderena and Marie Riski in 1922. Her parents listed as Matt Riski and Mary Mackey (Maki) His as Henry Soderena and Anna Karronen. Also found Henry's WWI Draft Reg card. It gives his DOB as 13 Jan 1878 instead of 30 Jan.

Einar Soderena born 9 Jan 1902, died July 1981 in Rockford, Winnebago, IL
Mary Soderena born 12 Jan 1906 died Jan 1995 in Rockford, Winnebago, IL
I also found the Söderena and Karvonen families in Evijärvi in the 1880 census/household rolls on the Finnish Archives. Hope the images come through. Soderena in Enaperä village and Karvonen in Karttu village. I have lots of relatives from Enaperä.
