My name is Titis Lahti I was born in Finland in 1882 and I died on 1912. I tried to come to the United States to find a job so I could move my family there. I wanted us to escape the poverty of Finland. My dad Titis Honkala got married to my mom Ageth Lahti. My dad was from Sweden and my mom was from Finland. My dad was close to the Finnish border and wanted my last name to be Finnish, so when my dad married my mom he took her last name. I died on the Titanic when I was thirty years old. My descendants say that I provided for my family’s future.
