The goal of this project is to identify when and how John and Mary Ohala immigrated to the USA, family member dispersal and reason moved from Nebraska to Chicago after 1910. I've found the family listing in 1940 census, but few places. Frances (sometimes spelled Francis) was my paternal grandmother. I believe Ellis Island records were lost but believe they immigrated around 1895. They settled in Chicago and spoke Polish at home.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Mark Bonine.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Any history of family pre-migration and odd reverse migration from Nebraska back to Chicago.
  • Surname appears to be Finnish or Estonian - establish origin
  • Ohala Family dispersal in US.
