I have a query as follows... I'm trying to get more info. but here is the basic request. Does anyone have any info. about them?

My grandmother's name was Anastasia Virtinen and my grandfather's name was Jalmar Hakkinen. They lived in Seattle, WA and my Dad's name was Leo Jay Hakkinen, changed to Hackinen. I'm trying to find any information about relatives in Finland.

I found two WWI Draft cards for a Jalmer Hakkinen, one in MN, the other in WA. One born 24 Mar 1890 in Kangasniemi, Mikkala, the other on 12 May 1893 in St Michael (Mikkili). I found a marriage in King county WA for Jalmer Hakkinen and Nanny Wirta 24 Jun 1918. Possibly Anastasia used Nanny or Nan. Also found a return to US on Sep 1925 of Jalmer, Nanny and Leo, age 4, after a trip to Finland. Says his father H Hakkinen in Kalvitsa, Finland. Kalvitsa near Kangasniemi and Mikkili.
