Can you tell me in which census you found information about Chisholm MN?

Also a birth date for Olga Honkonen.

I tried searching but i have been unable to find anything on Olga, Eino or Kaisa Niemi.

Not certain what you are looking for, but attached are the following:

Institute of Migration Passport and Passenger Information for Olga Maria Honkonen, who went to Hibbing, MN in 1907.

1907 Passenger List for SS Baltic, which shows she was born in Huittinen (line 19). It says she was going to join father Frans Honkonen, Chisholm, MN. But most likely, that was her brother.

Olga Maria, born 8.12.1884, Huittinen Birth Record

Huittinen Rippikirja, 1894-1903, showing Olga Maria; brother Frans Alekander, born 11.2.1882; and father Frans Vihtori Honkonen, born 22.11.1857. This page shows that Frans Aleksander went to Amerikka in 1902

Frank Eino Niemi died 30 Sep 1980 in Janesville, Waseca, MN
From a family tree on Ancestry, he was married to a Muriel Bertha Hajicek and had 4 children.
Muriel was born 24 Oct 1924 Hutchinson, McLeod, MN and died 3 Oct 1968 Minneapolis, Hennepin, MN.
It does not seem the owner of the tree knows any more about the Niemi family, no parents or siblings given for Frank Eino.

Thank you for all of the information. I was trying to answer a post from the Suku forum asking about Kaisa Niemi and her family. The original message was posted by Pietroh. Hopefully he/she will see these posts with all of the information you have both found. I had found some of the info, but I didn't want to post it since I was not sure of the birth dates.

I still don't understand why...if posts are robot transferred here from Suku Forum...why can't replies be transferred back? Anyone have an answer?

I was wondering that, too. I've answered a few of these and it looks like no one ever viewed or acknowledged seeing them.

Since Hasse is in charge of that, maybe he can explain how it's supposed to work...
