Greetings, Thomas!

First let me extend my congratulations to all Canadians for the spectacular Olympic Winter Games, and for the outstanding performance by your athletes!!

Thank you for responding to my post. Here follows the list of the seven (7) children of Matti Henriksson and Kaisa (Mantyniemi) Kotilainen:
1. Alma Maria Kotilainen
2. Oscar Mattsson Kotilainen
3. Kaarle Heikki Kotilainen
4. Rosa Alina Kotilainen (My Grandmother)
5. Selma Sofia Kotilainen
6. Olga Pauliina Kotilainen
7. Hilda Emilia Kotilainen

I believe all the children were born in Kivijarvi, Finland.

I was very interested in your comment regarding the BC Archives. Kaarle Heikki Kotilainen changed his last name to Kotila. It is possible that his older brother, Oscar Mattsson Kotilainen, may have changed his name to Kotila, Kotilla, or maybe even Katila, Kutila, or Kotial. Oscar Mattsson Kotilainen was born December 22, 1870, in Kivijarvi, Finland. I would greatly appreciate it if you could see if there are any matches, or near matches, to that birth date. I have been working on trying to find out where Oscar died and is buried. Perhaps you may have uncovered the answer to that question.

Please let me know your findings, and thank you for your generous efforts to help solve the family "Oscar Mystery".

Regards, Allan George Kaupinen
