Hi, I'm new here. I have a question: How many Finnish passengers lived in Helsinki?
And what is the most famous Finnish passenger?
I think many Finnish were from third class and died, weren't they? Thanks.

Regards from Rut

Hallo, Rut. There were 55 Finnish passengers, including 6 from Helsinki. All but 3 were travelling in Third Class, and only 16 survived. One of the most famous of all Titanic victims was the 'unknown child' buried at Fairview cemetery in Halifax. He has recently been identified (by DNA testing) as 1-year old Eino Panula, who died along with his mother and 4 brothers.

More women than men, yes? As far I know many children died. Did anyone of them survive?

Bob, thank you for the compliments on my website :).

However, I will have to let you know that there are some mistakes in my table mainly for two reasons:

1) I have been away from Finland for several years now and I have not been able to do much research on the Finns recently
2) Helping with Phil Gowan's book, there is some new information which we have decided not to make public for the time being.

Rut, how proficient are you in Finnish, and do you reside in Finland or in an English-speaking country? If you are fluent in Finnish, a new book has been published on the Finns just recently in that language, and with the help of a friend in Finland, we might be able to get you a copy, if you are interested.

AI heard of a teen-aged son, who drowned in Finland, but i don't know anything about him.They had 8 children inbetween 1892-1911
There was o teen-aged son that survived and died before Titanic. Ernesti and Jaakko were the only teen-aged sons, but the teen-aged son could possibly got translated wrong and it could have been 9-year -old Emma, but then she died in Ohio, in 1910.They said the son drowned din Finland. Can anyone help with this please? I will try later to post a pc of Emma and her parents circa 1902-3

Mrs. Juha Panula, born Maria Emilia Ojala, Dec 1, 1870 in Lappajarvi, Finland. She wed Juha Feb. 14,1892.

There is a great deal of information on Craig Stringer's Titanic People CD starting on Page 249 in the Third Class Passengers section. Try contacting the British Titanic Society to see where you get the CD

Best of Luck, Henry

Maria was born Maija Emelia Abrahamintytar Ojala , she is my great-great-great grandma's sister. I will look into the cd. I am writing my family tree, but i am stuck with hearing that Eino had a older brother who drowned as a teen in Finland.

something i found on a site, was about the Hamalainen family. The son, Vilho's full name: Vilho Unto Johannes Hamalainen. I'm gonna contact the site manager, to see if they will add it to his bio. They need as much information as they can.

My grandfather, Wilhelm Heino, came from Finland in 1902. according to my mother, He lent money in 1912 to a fellow Finn so he could have his family come to the US. This man gave my father a watch as collateral (which I am in possession). At the time, My grandfather lived in Vesta, Pennsylvania . I see that the Panula family's destination was Coal Center, Pa, which was very close to Vesta. Would anyone have info on the Panula family?
