UP of MI Aro's

My Grandfather (Oscar Aro) and Grandmother (Anna Jarvi Aro) immigrated from Finland (border of Sweden) in the early 1900's. My father is the youngest of 10, and we are all around the U.S. these days. We try and have a reunion every so often. I imagine we're all related somewhere along the way. Let me know if anyone is interested in further geneaology. Dave Aro

Hey Dave - I was just in Pajala (spelling) Sweden - right on the border of Finland. Where did your Grandfather and Grandmother immigrate in the States?

My guess is that we are related -

My grandparents were in the Keweenaw Peninsula, in a small town called South Range. I have their immigration certificates somewhere. Where are you located?

I live in Seattle. I was over in Sweden a few years back and visited the towns where there were a considerable amount of Aro's. Where are you from

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.

David,
My guess is that in some way we are related. I traveled back to the border of Finland and Sweden a few years back. The town that went to is Pajala Sweden. The only store in 100 miles was Aro Liv (Store). The grave yard was filled with Aro's. It was a interesting place.
Take Care
