Surname*: Tiri
Finland Location*: Kiminki
Birth Date: 02/22/1889 in Kiminki
Death Date: March 1963 in U.S.
Comment about Family*: My grandmother Selma (Tiri) Hautala came to the 
United States in 1910 from a farming community (Tirinkyla).  I am 
only beginning to search Selma's family tree in Finland.  I am in 
touch with relatives of Selma's sister, Greta Kakkurivarra, in 
Kemijarvi.  I would like to find out about the rest 
of Selma's family in Finland.

Surname*: Tervonen
Finland Location*: Helsinki and Rappanamaki
Birth Date   : 
Death Date: 
Comment about Family*: There is a large family association - 
the Tervonen family.  A distant uncle, (Esa Tervonen, former 
FinnAir pilot recently deceased), organized it and 
there is a family tree back to a Thomas Tervonen in about 1604.  
I have misplaced my information and contacts.  Can you help me with this?  
My father was George Tervo; his father Jakko Wilhem Tervo/Tervonen 
emmigrated to Northern Minnesota, then northern Michigan about 
1898-1900. His large family came from a farm near Rappanamaki 
in the north. Relatives still live there. There is a judge I met once - 
Juro? Tervonen in Helsinki, a radiologist, Osmo Tervonen in Oulu, 
and several of Esa Tervonen's children living in the Helsinki area. 
Any help would be appreciated.  Thank  you.  Judy Gray
