Any information would be great. Thank you, Julia

I could look further in sshy pages, but from Hiski I saw that there was one Anders Koskelo who was born Aug 1st 1847 in Puolanka Väyrylä village. This Anders' parents are Pehr Koskelo and Valborg Moilanen.

In Suomussalmi Kianto village there was Elsa Lisa Pertuntytär Anttonen born on April 10th 1848 to Bertil (Perttu) Anttonen and Kaisa Kemppainen.

Could any of these be the ones you are looking for?

Best regards,

I was able to spend some time yesterday on Anders Moilanen line and tracked him back to Antti Moilanen (b. c. 1555), who was the first known Moilanen in Eastern Finland. I added Anders now to and you can see him in

Antti Jaakonpoika Moilanen

And yes, we are related through Antti's line, and based on those other names in Anttonen, Sutinen and Kemppainen lines I believe there are more connections. My own bloodlines go through Väisänen, Saastamoinen, Nevalainen, Tolonen, Härkönen, Säkkinen and many others...

I will try to find more about Koskelo/Sutinen/Anttonen lines later.

Best regards from Blue Ridge Mountains!
