Hi there, My husband Allan Vining is the only son of kerttu Stenroos (1927 - 2010) Kerttu married Malcolm Vining and moved to Belfast for her whole married life. Kerttu's father, Otto Jalmari Stenroos was murdered in 1938 when she was 11 years old and her brother Heimo was 7rs old, Her mother Suoma (Saaristo) went on to marry again and had 3 more children. (Pekka, Pirrko and Sirrka) Sirrka moved to Belfast and married there. She died in February 2019. We are trying to find any information about Allans grandfather Otto Jalmari Stenroos and any other family that there may be, he doesn't know about please. Does anyone have a photo at all of Otto they would be willing to share online? We appreciate any help given.

Welcome to the Rogell ancestors, and also to the others of the Merikarvia ancestors. We are also linked by different ancestors, and are a bit close and distant relatives. Do not know if anyone in the Merikarvia area has any pictures of Otto Jalmar, or any relatives from there.

Thank you so much for sharing the photographs. They are amazing and fill in a space we had in my husbands tree. It means a lot. Would anyone happen to know of any surviving relatives of Otto still around? It would be unbelievable if there were. Thank you much for your help everyone, muchbappreciated, susan and Allan

Susan, I know Heimo and his wife Hilla and their four children, Raimo, Heli, Jorma and Jari. I visited Belfast with Heli some time 1987 or -88. I met Sirkka and Robin, but not your husband or his parents. I had frieds in Dublin and I spent some days there. Kerttu was my mothers friend. My mother told that someone in the village translated the loveletters at first. Kerttu has told that people in Belfast took her very varmly in to the family. "Our son brought the beautiful Snow Princess from The North to our family.
