Hello!

Seeing the date on your original queery makes me wonder if you are still using the site, but you never know. It is not every day that you run across another Parkkisenniemi. It seems there is a slight difference in surname spelling, but considering they are both from Taivalkoski, I somehow think we may be related.... So, my great great grandmother emmigrated from Taivalkoski Finland with her mother, my great great great grandmother. My 2x great grandmother was a child at the time. My 2x great grandmother was Priita Stiina Parkkisenniemi (1887-1964), and she later changed her name to Bertha Parks and married Joseph Somero. My 3x great grandmother was Kaisa Parkkisennimi (1859-1940). I do not know who Priita Stiina's father was considering Kaisa (and Priita Stiina) goes by her maiden name. Kaisa's father was Jaako Parkkisenniemi. My family did settle in the Upper Penninsula as well...
So, in all likelihood we are distantly related...
