How kind of HK to post a message on this Arola family site all the way from Finland. Thank you, HK.
I am descended from the Gustaff Arola (born July 22, 1860 in Kuivaniemi, Finland) family that settled in Becker County, Minn in 1883. Amy, if you have difficulty tracing your Arola ancestor in Finland, remember that it was not unusual for a family to take as their surname the name of the region or farm they came from. Emigrant brothers may have different surnames in America. I've been informed that we are not related to your Arola family. It sounds as though you're doing well in your research. Good luck.
