Hej igen! Did you see this?:

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a search-able database of merchant marines, or where I would write for records, as my grandfather was a merchant marine from Finland.
I have many documented ship arrivals, (in the port of New York), & just received my grandfathers passport.
He's been so many places, it seems there must be records somewhere that would give a little more information other than date of arrival & ship name.

My grandfather, Fridolf Julius Blomster, b.22 Dec. 1895, Helsingfors to (my g,grandmother), Emilia Sofia Blomster, (assuming out of wedlock), b. 01 Dec. 1871, Öfverkurk, Kirkkonummi. Fridolf married, (my grandmother), Elli Maria Väkinen, b. 23 Apr. 1894, Urjala.

I have much information on my grandmother's line and my grandfathers mother, but my grandfather and HIS fathers line, (as I don't know who his father was), has been my "brick wall" for at least 10+ years.

As always, any info. is greatly appreciated!

Some of you may still remember me, & yes, I'm still searching!

I have not posted before because I could not figure out how to do it but here is a try.
I am researching the Boudinmäki, Härmä, Kärpä and Huumonen - all same family, different farms they have lived on. They lived first in Liminka and then moved to Paavola. Also the Pietilä and Mankinen family of Paavola.
I will be coming to Finland in October and would like to see some of these farms if they are till around. Is there anything written on the history of farms in this area or surrounding areas?
We also have Sarkkinen from Kempele, Huntus, Hirvi, Jokela, SAarela, etc.
I would like to contribute to Talko to see if anyone else is in these lines but haven't been able to figure out how to do that either. Any help is appreciated. Diane Homola

You did it right! Your letter is posted. In order to get into Talko, you'll need to submit a GedCom to Hasse and get a password from him. When you click on Talko you'll see Hasse's name and when you click on it, his address appears. Well, I just tried it, but don't see his name or address there - here it is:

I know some of the names you mentioned do appear in Talko - I have some of them in my own database, too, such as Paavola, Pietilä, etc.

I don't know where you can find a history of the farms. Maybe a member in Finland will know??
