View Full Version : Lumijoki Parish Records Daavittila

I am currently trying to find more information on another relative of mine. Actually I am trying to find more information about his family. His name was Isaac Daavittila. Supposedly he came from the Lumijoki Parish. I have tried searching the Hiski database with no luck. Does anybody have an experience with relatives from that area or does anybody recognize the last name Daavittila? I do know he got married to a Liisa Nygard (Pisila) who was born in the Siikajoki parish. Both of them moved to the United States with their 3 children. I appreciate any help. Thanks so much. :)

Attached is 1880 Henkikirjat, showing the Farm Daavittila, Village Lapinniemi, Lumijoka.
I don't see the name Isaac, but perhaps he was too young to be shown in this record.
And you might see the names of his parents.

The attached record shows that on 3.4.1903, Iikka Juhonp. Daavittila, born 6.6.1879, moved into Siikajoki from Lumijoki.

The 1880 Lumijoki Henkikirjat shows Johan Johansson Daavittila, born 1843; wife Margreta, born 1842; and 3 male children (B 3-0). This could be the family of Isaac Daavittila.

I also have ancestry in Lumijoki. My understanding is that records were lost when the church burned. Interesting that my ancestors also moved to Siikajoki.
