In Reply to: Maki/Aho Family by Donna Morin of 338

Hello-

this is a shot in the dark, but... I have run into quite a few Aho's in my family, and I have a main vein of Maki's running in my tree from Lapua, Finland. I have a Hilda Maria Kahkipuro who married a MR. Aho, (Don't know his first name) and they had a daughter, Viola. Kahkipuro is also a main line for me. I know that some of my Maki/Puro/Aho relatives migrated from Finland, to North Carolina, to Massachusetts, to Wisconsin. Not all, but some. Then, ALOT of my family lines moved to Wisconsin- guess the climate suited them. I have a family member out there in Wisconsin who has a book on our family of Kahkipuro's and it seems to me that I ran across some Aho's. I just got information on one of my family lines of Maki- my great grandfather had a sister by the name of Selma Maki. Now, not sure yet if there is a connection, but it would be interesting- I'll have to dig this book up, as I have a copy, and do a look up for you- it may help, and we might be able to make a connection. The names you have listed seem familiar, especially Lillian- she wouldn't have by chance had a married name of Ackren? I don't know if this Ackren name is even a surname, just a guess through some notes I recieved. Edwin also seems to stick out for me. Let me know if you are interested.
Thanks!
Keittaa
