I need help in finding relatives of Hugo Alexander and Johannes Edvard Köping who emigrated to the States in 1911 (?) and 1915 (?) respectively. Hugo Alexander were both born in Malax: Hugo Alexander on 25 Nov. 1891 and Johannes Edvard on 22 April 1895. Their family first moved from Malax to Petalax and then from Petalax to Korsnäs. Besides the siblings that stayed in Finland they also had a brother, Oscar Leander, born in 1905, who moved to Canada in 1926.

Their parents were Karl Abrahamsson Köping and Johanna Fogde, an ancestor of mine.
