View Full Version : Asujamaa Family

26-07-14, 22:59
The other side of my family. My great-grandmother's brother brought his sisters to WA State to marry Finns. They were "mail-order" brides. I have her family tree from her parents back, I just don't have the names and birth dates of all her siblings. I would love to have this information and the dates they each emigrated.

These are the parents of my grandmother Ida Johanna Asujamaa. Ida emigrated 9-9-1891. The brother who brought the sisters here was Andrew Asujamaa. Name change in the US to Asuja.

Thank you for any help you can give me.
