This family is from NY - NYC and Hillsdale, NY. Immigration dates - Emilia Wiskari, 1913 and William Kilpianen, 1918 - traceable through Ellis Island records and it's sketchy from there. They had 1 son Tauno William, my father. I know the name was shortened to Kilpi sometime, before dad was born? and dad dropped the name Tauno legally at some time before he joined the Army. All of the name changes don't help traceability. Grandma is in SSDI as Emily. Grandpa died around 1934 before SS. Unfortunately my father is deceased so I can't get any details from him. I think he was born in Hillsdale. I know he went to high school there. Would appreciate any help or info anyone has.
