John (Jussi) Pakkala Finland to Michigan
Posted by: Sharon Poage Pakkala Date: February 04, 2001 at 14:11:28

I am looking for descendants of John or Jussi Pakkala (born about 1870) who came from Finland to Sault Ste. Marie, MI, in 1904, and raised a family there. His wife was Alma and children were Eva Marie, Ellen L., and Wilhelm J. Pakkala. I am trying to make contacts for a man in Finland, Hannu Riihivarra, who is a relative of this family and would like to connect with his American cousins. I have found John Pakkala and his family in the U.S. census for 1920, and himself possibly in a boarding house under the name John Pakli in the 1910 census. Though my husband is a Pakkala we have not been able to find a connection. Please let me know if you are related to John Pakkala, and I will share that with Hannu.
Thank you, Sharon Poage Pakkala
