  • Name Heiniluoma (Bloom), Anton Villinpoika (Wilhelmsson)  
    • He was born Anton Heiniluoma and took the name Bloom upon immigrating to the United States. He was called Andrew in the 1909 border crossing papers at Detroit, and in the 1910 and 1920 US Censuses. He was Anton in the 1930 US Census. Bloom was spelled Blom in some papers.

    Gender Male 
    Immigration 27 Nov 1902  Boston, Massachusetts, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [2
    Anton Heiniluoma, 30 years old, sailed from Liverpool, England on the Saxonia. His wife Fiina was not with him; she had arrived in Boston about 5 months earlier in Jun, 1902. For his destination he named his brother Frans Myllyharja in Maynard Massachusetts. (See image below).  
    Immigration 9 Dec 1905  New York, New York, USA Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Anton appears to have returned to Finland to bring back his 5 year old son Toivo, as Anton and Toivo arrived on the ship Baltic from Liverpool, England. He declared his final destination to be his wife's residence in New York City. 
    Residence Abt 1908  Windsor, Ontario, Canada Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Anton and his family lived in Windsor as shown by Border Crossing records and the fact that two of of his children (Uno and Ina) were born there. 
    Residence Bef 1909  Detroit, Wayne, Michigan Find all individuals with events at this location 
    The exact movements of Anton and his family in North America were unclear before 1910. In a 1909 border crossing record with Fiina and infant Ina he said he was returning to his home in Detroit at 532 Monroe Ave. Since Uno and his other children did not cross at this time, they were probably waiting in Detroit.

  • Notes 
    • Movements of the Bloom Family in North America are not clear.
      The 1920 US Census says that Anton and Fiina immigrated in 1902. Apparently they first lived in New York, where Andrew (1904) and Armas (1906) were born. Uno (1907) and Ina (1909) were born in Canada. In 1909, Anton, Fiina and 3 month old Ina crossed the border into the US, and the form indicated they were going to their own home in Detroit. Ina was on a separate page of the form. When did they first move to Detroit? They were settled in the Eagle River area by 1910.
