Hi all,

I am from the Southern part of Oregon, I joined to seek help in finding information on my husbands ancestry. The Puoskari family lived in Seaside Oregon traveling from Minnesota, Immigrating from Revonlathi. They changed their names to Kari just don't know when or where. Need the help of this forum to fill in the blanks.
