NAME: Mary Ann Blomquist-Gogoleski (anny%40ameritech.net) (http://)

My grandfather, Andrew Blomquist, and grandmother, Sofia Junell, came from Finland. They were married, at the ages of 24 & 23, on April 20, 1888, in Michigan. My greatgrandfather's name was John Jacobson, and greatgrandmother's name was Katrina Jacobson. My maternal greatgrandmother's father was Sofia Junell, and greatgrandfather's name was Martin Junell. I am trying to find out more information, like where in Finland did they come from, and whether any of my greatgrandparent's came from Sweden. Can you help?

I have many Junell names from Nedervetil and Karleby parishes, but none have the names being searched. I also have an Andrew Blomquist who married 8 Nov 1890 in Escanaba, MI to Emma Eriksdotter Torrkulla. I have Blomquist/Blomqvist names found mostly in Kronoby, Munsala, Pedersöre and Nykarleby.
