Hello--

I am a new member, researching ancestors in Finland (mostly Vaasa area--Kurikka, Kauhajoki, Ilmajoki). My ggrandparents (Samuel Mutkala/Samuel Hakala and Hilma Vahamaki emigrated from Finland to Michigan, USA in the early 1900s.

Looking forward to learning about the resources here.

Welcome. You'll find many people here with ancestors from the same areas. Mine, too, came from Vaasa län to Michigan. I also have ties to Salla in northern Finland.

Welcome to Finlander. Are you looking for info. about anyone? If so, post names and dates and perhaps someone can provide some help. I have some Hakala names, but not Samuel.

Thank you so much for the links and attachments! They should help fill in some missing information. I will enjoy learning about the resources here, and posting when I figure out exactly which ancestors I need more information on.
