View Full Version : Karmeniemi Family

My grandmother was Tyyne Sivia Karmeniemi born 10 may 1896 in the Vipurri area. Her father was Adam born about 1870 and her mother was Hilda Maria born 1861. I know she had a brother Armas and at least 2 sisters, Mirjam and Rosa. Tyyne came to the US in 1921 with her mother and a niece, Maire. In 1922 she married Karl Nyman and my father Leo was born in 1923. Any information about her siblings or ancestors would be greatly appreciated.

Information will be found if the letter 'a with two dots' is used.

The time limit for information is 100 years in Finland, the sisters mentioned must be born after 1900

My mistake - Mirjam was not a sibling. And Rosa was the oldest sister but her name was incorrect in documentation making her more difficult to find. But I'm thankful for new additions to my family tree and appreciate. all of your input. Sandra
