I live in Negaunee, MI, which is in the U.P. near Lake Superior. The Aro family of my father is from the Houghton, MI area, specifically South Range, which is in the Keweenaw Peninsula. My grandfather, Oscar Aro, was a copper miner. My grandmother's maiden name was Jarvi. Most of our family is in the mid-west, as nearly all of my father's siblings (all 9 of them) moved to the Detroit area in the 30's and 40's to work for the auto industry as the mine's were closing down.
