Hi Rachel,
Just wanted to introduce myself and my husband Richard. My name is Kathie and my husband Richard Karpinen, his grand father was born in Finland. ours is the first several posting listed. We have since found a few more Karpinen relatives. Once in the Us they settled in Wisconsin. But his grandfather Jack Karpinen estranged from the family settled in Penn. where he died in about 1976.
In Ariz. there are only three Karpinen's one not related to us. The other one is my husbands parents who live right in back of us.
