I have found the church records for the Hakanen family however, they are in Finn and I am sorry to say I did not learn the language. The records begins with this paragraph Hei vaan
Sattui niin sopivasti, että sain viestisi jurri kun olin aloittanut 3 päivän urakan Kirkkonttorissa ja katsoin tuon Hakasenkin vuoteen 1945 saakka. Nehän meni kaikki Amerikkaan, vain Iisakki katoaa jonnekin. Can anyone help me translate? Thank you all. Wes H.

A "quick and dirty" translation..

"Hi,

As it happened I got your message just as I had started a three day pass at the church office and thus I looked up this Hakanen until 1945. They all went to America, only Iisakki disappears somewhere."
