Hi, I am also a Sarvela descendant. My grandmother was Amalia Hermannintytar Sarvela, daughter of Herman Hermanninpoika Sarvela and Maria Ratti. Since this is an old posting, I am not sure I can get through to you. I have been researching Amalia's brother, Heikki, here in the United States. He was known as the Pioneer Preacher of the Midwest and is credited with helping to establish a great majority of the Finnish Lutheran churches in Minnesota. He ministered to churches in Minnesota, the Dakotas, Wisconsin and parts of Canada. He received the Order of the White Rose from the President of Finland for his accomplishments.
If you are interested in corresponding, please contact me.
