Jewish Community in Finland #general #russia

My grandfather said he was born in Finland, probably in Hamina, Finland. Does anyone know if there was a Jewish community in Hamina, Finland around 1878, when he was born? How might I find out about this? When he was a little boy, his family moved (back?) to Riga, which is where his family was from. Why did they move to Finland? Why did they leave Finland and move to Latvia? I'm trying to find out all I can about Jews in Finland. (I've looked at the general sources available through the web.)
