Hi Carleen,

Looks like Jani Koski has already helped you in finding the birth record for your Issac Edward Korpela. The baptismal record provides us with some helpful info:

Child's Name: Iisakki Edvard (apara) - (translates to "bastard")
Father: not listed
Mother: Justina Liisantytar (translates to "daughter of Liisa) Korpela
Farm: Wierulan

Date of Birth: 7 Aug 1887
Date of Baptism: 14 Aug 1887

Hi Carleen. Just saw your posting on the Finland Ancestry page and wanted to let you know that there IS a Iisakki Edvard born in Lapua to a Justiina Liisantytär Korpela. The birth date is 7 AUG 1887, though. Could this be your Iisakki? If it is, Justiina was born in Ylistaro on 5 DEC 1857. Since both Iisakki and Justiina are illegitimate, it will be hard to find fathers for them.

Thanks Carleen - it was fine that he contacted me. I started a response and then got side tracked. He is really close to me - about an hour away so I may go look at his files. If I do I'll be glad to look for you also. I have a couple questions for you but I don't have my files close at hand right now, so I will get back to you later. I now know I went about things backwards - when I first started researching I downloaded the tree from the LDS Family search site (PAF5) and then adapted it to my needs. All my notes, documentation, etc are attached to this file. I have my own system to jog my memory as to what I'm missing for a person and what I've verified. But it is not easy to share. So I went to and started redoing all my info on a tree there - a very slow process. I don't subscribe yet so I'm not sure how I would share my files.Do you have any suggestions as to what might work or be a better option? I'll get back to you later today with my questions about our Malcom's. Thanks!

hi Carleen,
My email is
I know my gg-grandfather was John S Malcolm, 1819 - after 1880 (m. Mary Jane Myers). I believe John S. father was Samuel m. Jean Leake about 21 Feb 1804 in Monroe County.
I have looked at what other researchers give as the line after Samuel. Would love to know what you have. Any help would be appreciated. I've read your postings on other sites and know you've been trying to track George and Joseph - any luck connecting them?

I would appreciate any information on how to use the results for our DNA testing. My brother hasn't had his DNA tested (and I think he doesn't want to do it.) When I got hold of one of the employees (on the phone), she said that it covers the DNA for mothers on both sides of the family and follows each anteceding mother from there out. (So, your Mother's mother's mother/Father's mother's mother, etc.)
It didn't help much. Please let me know if you get a better, more informative answer. Thanks

When you get time, let me know what census you need. I'll look them up, make a print out and send them to you by snail mail. I'm not sure the 1855, 1865, or 1875 Ilinois Census are online, so I don't know if I can get them. You also can e-mail me directly at

Do you have an obituary for Susan Smith? If so, it might list living siblings or nieces or nephews? That might help with siblings to help identify other family members and zero in on her parents. Does either the county in NJ or in Illinois have a county history? If so, it might be worth looking at for Smiths (especially the Illinois one)? Good luck with the hunt. I get tired of hitting my head against my brick walls, so sometime its nice to brainstorm about some one else's problem child. Do you have access to 1850-1880 census?

Carleen, I also have the Sorenson DNA and haven't a clue about how to read the stuff. The way they explained it, I would have to check all the people that are listed as the best matches---that's something over 15 pages full of people! There's got to be a more efficient way to handle it.
