Norden Newspaper, Dec. 18, 2003, had a full page article about Susanne Österlund-Pötzsch and her research on the descendants of Swedish Finn emigrants for her book "American Plus. Ethnic Identity of Finland-Swedish descendants in North America". She interviewed people in Seattle, Vancouver, Boston, New York and Philadelphia. There's also a picture of Suzanne with Professor Thomas DuBois, a former editor of the SFHS Quarterly.

I have now got the book "American Plus", 251 pages including 19 pages with an extended summary in English, and some photos. A nice photo of Syrene and Don Forsman outside the SFHS office on page 64. I have not had time to read the book yet.
