I'm trying to find my Grandmother's family in Finland. I've found her arrival records on Ellis Island. She arrived from Goteborg, Goteborg och Bohus, Sweden on April 25, 1921. Her residence was listed as Helsinki, although if you look at the original ships manifest, it lists her hometown as Nokia. Her father's name is listed as Kalle Nurminen of Nokia. Her destination was Danville, Il. Eventually she married my grandfather, Lee William Lennon, and gave birth to two children, dying in labor with the second in Ashtabula, OH. Any insights to our lineage would be greatly appreciated. Happy New Years!

Hi Iris,

There are no HisKi database online records for Nokia (former Pohjois-Pirkkala of the former parish of Pirkkala) so one step may be to send a request to the church office of Nokia

Nokian seurakunta, kirkkoherranvirasto
Korkeemäenkatu 8 , 37100 NOKIA, Finland
Phone (03) 2804 111
Fax (03) 3423 505

or contact Nokian sukututkijat (Genealogists of Nokia)

Sari Karimäki-Tuomisto
Ketovältinkatu 10
37200 SIURO, Finland
e-mail: sari.karimaki-tuomisto@pp.inet.fi

Hope this helps,
