View Full Version : Hello from Adelaide, AUS

Hi my name is Marlie and I'm from Adelaide, Australia.

I joined a few days ago as I was searching for information about my great-grandfathers family.
He was from Lemland in Aland.
Luckily in the past couple of days I've been able to put together the whole family tree pretty much thanks to some wonderful people but I still thought I'd introduce myself and check out this forum.

My mum & myself have a trip to Finland planned for July & I'm attempting to teach myself some Finnish so it's nice to find a place where I can learn more about the culture and people.

Nice to meet you,

Our member Ingemar Ekman is from Åland and has been able to help a lot of people with research there. If you still have questions, post a query and he'll see it.

Welcome to Finlander. From time to time we have queries concerning emigrants to Australia.

Welcome to the forum, Marlie. Lemlands info you can find here http://www.lemland.aland.fi/ . But you also have to learn some swedish if you are going to Åland.
