Smile Arosa Sun, Reijo Silvennoinen 1957

My uncle, parents, sister and I arrived from Finland via Hamburg at Halifax's Pier 21 in Aug. 8, 1957 aboard the Arosa Sun (I believe).

I have been digging into my roots and ancestry and that includes our voyage across the Atlantic in 1957 to the "new land" looking for better opportunities.

My dad eventually settled in Longlac, Ontario and worked for Kimberly Clark Pulp and Paper for his career and now lives in Thunder Bay.

I live in Calgary, Alberta.

Anyway, I was looking for information on our voyage which includes the Arosa Sun tourist ship. We have some photos from the ship but they are not in my possession at this time (mom has them in T.Bay).

If you have any information on that ship etc., let me know!

Cheers!

Reijo

Ah, did these people also come over on ship(s) in the '50's? There are definitely quite a few immigrants out here in Alberta from what I know. They seem to gather together in certain communities ... for instance Finns in central Alberta in the Eckville area etc.

I don't mind touching bases with them if you wish to PM contact info.

Thanks for the welcome and information everyone!

I appreciate it!

Reijo
