Hi, Linda! My grandmother's parents emigrated here in the late 1890s and eventually married and settled in Fitchburg, MA. They were Karl (Kalle) Koski(nen) and Olga Lyydia Sippola (with various spellings). Karl arrived first and lived in San Francisco for a while. When his first wife died, he travelled east and met Olga. My grandmother's name was Marta, and she had one sister named Elsie. Marta and Elsie married and stayed in the US; Karl and Lyydia returned to Finland in the 1930s. We are also of Saami descent, and my father has many reindeer-related items from his grandparents. We just moved into a new house, so it will take me awhile to find dates and other info. Let me know if you think this is a line you're interested in following. Karen
