Djerf family, Pihtipudas/Pielavesi/Kietele area

Surnames: Djerf, Luomi, Siekkinen, Paananen, Maki, Luiska
Seeking descendants of Erik Djerf b 1779 Finland. Son Johan (1812-1858), his son Petter (1855-1894) married Serafia Juhonytytar Luomi 1879. He died in Finland 1894. She emigrated to Michigan in the US about 1912 with two children: John Peter (1880-1951); Tyyne Serafia (1885-1952).

Tyyne was my great-grandmother. She settled in Massachusetts, U.S.A.
John Peter was the progenitor of a large family in Massachusetts in the U.S. with whom I am in touch. Many of them are now living in Florida

I visited Pihtipudas and other nearby towns in the early 1990s, met cousins, including many Tavastjerna family members. Other related names are: Siekkinen, Paananen, Maki, Luiska.

Due to language barriers, contact with my cousins did not continue. The one American contact I had became unavailable to contact by mail. But that was before the internet, and I'm hoping that an English-speaking family member can communicate with me over the internet.

Thank you,
Paula Reynolds
