Hej--I am making an inquiry about Dorothy Röj. As an author, she has written several books. Her last name "Röj" interests me very much. My Fathers last name was "Röj" before he came to the U.S. and then was changed to "Roy." He was born in Malax, Finland and had many relatives there and still does.
I am curious to know if there is any connection between the last names.
I know Dorothy Röj was born in Canada of Finnish emigrants who later moved back to Finland. I don't know if Dorothy moved back to Finland with her parents. I know she lived in Sweden for 10 years and is now a resident of Töjby in Österbotten.
Is there anyone in this wide world who would happen to know of her? Tack så mycket ooch ha en bra tag!!!!
