I have a new request for help from Finland as follows:

Johannes Karhumaa, b. 7 Aug 1891 Finland (immigration 9 Apr 1913 Ellis Island), d.1965 Ca. Married to Saimi Alida Kalapudas, b. 27 Aug 1896 Finland (immigration 12 Apr 1913 Ellis Island), d. 1965 Ca.
They have got married in the USA and the family would have at least one
child Eugene by the name, may be more children. Eugene would also die 1976
CA.

Would appreciate any info. about the family.

In facebook there is a woman that belongs to a "surname" group - she is in East Bay and her current last name is Helin. So that "could" be some more clues there. I could "try" to send her a message if you think I should try.

I was successful with that approach recently and reunited folks that were "lost".

Ilmari,

That would be great if you would try to contact that woman. The family in Finland doesn't know how to find more info. about these people.
