Just wanted to say a quick hello. I have been trying to find and research my history in Finland. It appears once they came to the US, the name changed. It was Stopsen, and now I find other records that are Stopson and now Gikiere has come up along with Jokinen.... I am very confused about this "name war" that I have read so much about. If anyone can give me some hints I would be very greatful. I have found my Grandfather and he still speaks Finnish and living here in the US. It is his father that was married twice that splits things up. I am a 32 year old single mother of 2 and really want to help my father and grandfather answer some long ago questions. Hopefully i will start to uncover many soon.

If you have any suggestions, please feel free to email me at jstopson%40cableone.net

Any suggestions would be great!!
