Hi everyone!

It has been a while, I had to stop searching as my searches, for a while, as they were going no where. My cousin Cindy did some searching, and she has finally found our Great Grandmother Maria Amelia Pettersdr Ruicka. She was born Maria Amelia, and went my Amelia. Aliina is the middle name she used in the US, unsure why, but her younger sister Ann's middle name was Aliina. I assume she went by her middle name as her mother was Maria Lisa Johansdr. born 16 September 1850. Amelia's father Petter August Johanss Ruicka was born 15 August 1848. I am looking for any information on them.

Petter and Maria's children:
Greta Gustava b. 24 Oct 1873
Johan Alfred b. 5 July 1875
Hilda Alice b. 26 July 1877
Ann Aliina b. 5 Nov 1879

It has been a long 10 years of hitting brick walls, and finally I have some information. :cool:

Hi,
You say you've "found" Maria Amelia. Do you have a date of birth for her or where/when she immigrated to the USA?

Regards,
Denise

Hi Denise,

Yes, that is the family! :) Thanks! Her birthdate is: 15 August 1871

As for immigration, I believe it was 1892-95 and she originally went to New York Mills Minnesota, but ended up in Tower Soudan MN, where she married Matt Kultala.....I believe his last name might have been Siniluoto...am still looking to verify him. I have found those same files on him, but they are poorly written.....
