Jaakola name & Kempele parish
Posted on June 7, 2003 at 09:07:09 AM by Cheri Backlundc

I am searching for my great grandmother's history in Finland. She was born July 22nd, 1884 as Anna Helena Jaakola. Jacob as her father. Kempele listed as the parish.

I am interested in learning who her parents were and her siblings. All information on birth, confirmations, deaths, marriages, etc. is greatly appreciated.

Anna left Finland for the USA in November of 1902 as a single 18 year-old girl.

I still have not found a viable email address to the Kempele parish.

Terve Cheri!

The culture secretary in Kempele have the name Maija Jaakola, maybe she is your relative? Try to write an e-mail to her... maija.jaakola@kempele.fi . If she is not from the same family I believe she can help you with more information about Kempele. I am not sure that the family name Jaakola from the beginning came from Kempele. On the website for The Genealogical Society of Finland - HisKi project ( http://www.genealogia.fi/hiski/atu4qx?en+A17 ) you find more Jaakola in the neighbour parish Limingo/Liminka and Oulunsalo. Maybe Anna Helena Jaakola, a crofter’s daughter, was a member of a new family in Kempele? If you get information from church books in Kempele about her parents, maybe also their parents, it not will be hard to find more about her in the Hiski project.

You can write to the parish in English, address: Kempeleen seurakunta, PL 28, 90441 Kempele, Suomi/Finland or send. Ore write a mail to people who work with the parish register in Kempele, try with helinä.arola@evl.fi or terhi.putaala@evl.fi . When you get more information it will be possible to help you on this site.

Need you something? I have looked at some people from Kempele. I know some, who had moved also from Kempele to USA.
