Hi
A new data base at http://www.eminst.net/
The emigrant database is collected by the Åland Islands´ Emigrant institute with information taken from the local newspaper "Tidningen Åland" from year 1892 and forward,
mostly obituaries. The data base lists about 1470 emigrants.
I think the institute will continue with links to digital pictures of the oldest newspapers.

Merry Christmas,
Ingemar

PS. If any Finlander / SFHS member find any relatives, I will be happy to take photos of the newspaper. I look forward to my trip to Mariehamn. I have found several of my cousins in the database and want to read the newspaper!!<ingemar_ekman*hotmail.com>
