Searching for information on the family of John Leidenius. I found his name on Ponoka's web page about Local government history(Municipal District of Fertile Valley, year 1933).

We are only a few persons in Finland with the name of LEIDENIUS and I'm hoping to get hold of someone who knows
about the LEIDENIUS family in Canada. Is John Leidenius a relative of mine?

Hey, from what I researched on John Leidnenius, who is my great grandfather, father of my grandfather Taisto "Ty" Leidenius. He was born in Teuva, Finland, and his mother's name was Lydia.

Oh and John was married to Senjia Kengas
