Petri Skriko, who was a professional hockey player 1979-99.. played for various teams.. now retired. Was a "hot name" in Finland at the time. Can anyone find the name of his grandfather, and more info. about his father Väinö?

Petri Skriko's great grandfather was Johan Gustav Mickelsson Skriko, b. 24 Dec. 1850, Nedervetil, married (in 1877) Sara Maria Niemimäki, b. 24 March 1855 in Suomussalmi (Hiski doesn't know her). The two lived at that time in Karttula, where Johan worked as a carpenter.

They later moved on to Kotka, where he worked as a boat-builder. They had 8 children, 6 boys and 2 girls. So one of them must have been Petri's grandfather. Petri's father was Väinö Skriko, colonel employed in the Finnish UN-battalion in the Near East.
