I am looking for info of the parents and siblings of:

Ida Kustava Immonen, born in Sotkamo parish 7 May 1890
Lydia Immonen, born 6 November 1887 maybe in Sotkamo too and
Maria Immonen of whom I have no data.

All sisters went to Denmark between 1905 and 1911 and all married Danish men and became Danes.

In the Danish churchbooks was written at Ida's wedding that her father was Juho Kusti and her mother was Maria K???? - but this is very incertain, as the vicar propably wrote what he thought he heard!
At Lydias wedding another vicar wrote, that her father was "the taylor Immonen"

Ida was my grandmother - and she never saw Finland again due to lack of money for the ticket. At the table in the living-room she always kept two small flag-stands - one with the Danish flag and the other with the Finnish flag.
She died 1964.

Every contribution to the puzzle would be gratefully appreciated - kind regards Laila Olsen

Hi Jarmo and Tapani,

I am so greateful - many, many thanks to both of you.

My problem has first of all been, that the notes in the churchbooks - and other places - was written "as heard" - i.e. a lot of mistakes had to be "washed" out of the text.

Not I can try to find my way back in my heritage - but if anyone - in or outside the Immonen-family are taken interest in the whereabouts, I will beneth write what I have of the 2 sisters.
unfortunately I do not have anything on Kaisa Maria, other that she was living in Copenhagen - and was married there to a man with a very common name. At least i know she was alive when Iida died in 1964.

Lyydi was married in Denmark 19 May 1915 (the day after my grandmother) in the parish of Nakskov city, Norhern Lolland Area, Maribo county to Hans Peter Martin Joergensen. 27 March 1918 they had a son Svend Aage Joergensen.

Iida married Viggo Valdemar Nielsen 15 May 1916 in Stadager parish, Falster North area, Maribo county.
Before marrying Viggo she had my father Karl Arthur Eigil 13 January 1912. 4 November 1916 they had a daughter Hilia Marie.

Iida died i Nykoebing Falster parish, Falster south area, Maribo county 5 February 1964 and buried same place 8 February 1864.

Once again - thak you both - and please, do not hesitate to contact me if you need some information from my part of the world

Best regards,
Laila Olsen
