How to trace the Wickstrom family in Finland?

+7 votes
I would like to trace the Wickstrom family history in Finland in the early 20th century, specifically what happened with regard to Leonard Wickstrom whose siblings were Gunnar Wickstrom and Vera Wickstrom. The latter two emigrated to Canada and America before the first world war while Leonard remained behind in Finland passing away in wartime conditions around 1940.
