Also very interested in Frans Oskari's father Juho Pekka Luiro (1867-1945). Would like to get in touch with someone that maybe can share a photo of Juho Pekka and/or his son Frans Oskari
Greetings Björn Lindholm, Skellefteå, Sweden
Here are some examples on what is found on Frans Luiro there:
https://digi.kansalliskirjasto.fi/sanom ... es=&page=1
- they are all in Finnish, sorry
- the first ones in Pohjolan Sanomat, Rovaniemi and Perä-Pohja in 1928 tells that Frans Luiro has been elected in the committee for schools
- - Lain Raahen Seutu and in Suursavolainen in 1921 tells about 6 people who where drowned in Kemi; Frans Luiro and Eino Huotari were the first ones to try to help them and could save the lives of two persons (Yrjö and Kalle Liikanen)
- in Lapin Kansa in 1921 Frans is also elected to the committee of Jaatila village school.
Frans Luiro has been a prominent person in the village of Jaatila, because he was chosen to the committee.
In Sotapolku (War path) you can find some Luiro persons from Rovaniemi

Luiro is not a common name at all.
Otherwise than seeking contact to Rovaniemi people (especially Jaatila, Rovaniemi) you have difficulties. But I am sure there are local genealogists and local history interested in Rovaniemi. Here are the contact pages of Peräpohjolan sukututkijat (genealogists based in Rovaniemi) https://www.perapohjolansukututkijat.fi/2 which you might find some help from.
