I'm Catherine from the Portland, Oregon area. I first became interested in my family geneology a couple of years ago while pregnant with my daughter. My ggrandparents are Swedish-Finns from the Vora area (Hedman, Jfs,Slgs). Since I began delving into my grandmother's family I have reconnected to my dad's cousin in Canada and another cousin on the Hedman side in Finland. What fun! Thanks go to June Pelo for her help.
I now have a beautiful two year-old we named Anna after my Swedish-Finn ggrandmother. I am gathering stories and pictures
so my kids will have records of their family. My husband and I are hoping to visit Finland as well as some other European countries in the next couple of years.
