I'm so sorry. I completely forgot!

Don't know if this is going too far but these are from the christening records.

Christening: 23.4.1851

House: Tenhola Jokilaks [might mean 'Jokilahti' in Finnish]
Father: T. måg. Elias Johanss. Piispanen [Johanss. = Johansson = son of Johan]
['T. måg' has something to do with tenant farming I think]

This is from the marriage records:

And this from the death records:

If you could tell me where Pekka Laajala was born it would be very helpful. Right now I can't find him. I'd be happy to try and search him.
