I am looking for a birth/baptism record for Lauri Lars Petter Pihlaja. Said to be born 20, April 1861 Aittojarvi, Ita-Suomen Laani, Finland. He emigrated in 1882 to Ottertail County, Minnesota, USA where he lived until his death in 1912. He was known as Peter Pihlaja in America. I am sure my spelling of the Province is incorrect, but it is the best i can do. I am hoping to verify that this is the same man. His parents are said to have been Daniel Pihlaja(1827-1896) and Anna Greta Haarahiltunen(1827-1907). I appreciate any assistance as i do not know how to search Finland for records.
