A cousin in Finland sent me an article from Vasabladet, August 13, 2006, written by Torbjörn - about the ancestors of Michael Swanson. I thought the data sounded interesting and when I checked my files, I saw that Michael and I had corresponded before he went to Rejpelt this summer to find the birthplace of his ancestors. Good article, Torbjörn.

Thanks for posting that June! We were in Vasa on August 13 and our friend Marita showed us that article. It was so exciting for us because the day before, thanks to Marita and Siri Hagback at the Malax Museum, we were reunited with cousins I never knew existed. The matriarch of the family is my ggrandmother's sister's granddaughter. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, Elaine
