Greetings, Alan!

I am so excited to find a new lead! I am confused about all the passport entries for Antti - were the passports all issued under Kreeta's brother and father? I don't believe the family tree you mention on Ancestry.com is mine. I've never been able to figure out whether Gust and Kreeta married in Finland or the US, and have never found any emigration details on either of them. During my latest research I found a 1910 US Census that placed Gust, Kreeta and Kreeta's mother in ND and Liisa (Lizzie according to the census) was widowed. I also learned from that record that Gust emigrated to the US in 1899. I've seen birthdates for him of 1880 and 1883.

I digress. I would be interested to know whose family tree you are referring to and appreciate links and any other tips you can share to help me in my search. This is so exciting - I can't wait to share my findings with my extended family at Thanksgiving. We have had a whole in this side of our family for years! Look forward to hearing back from you. Thanks so much!!!
