The latest issue of Norden newspaper has an article about the gathering held in Åland for the descendants of the 13 original settlers of Mariehamn. Ingemar Ekman was there with his computer, answering questions of the descendants. Ingemar sent me this link showing President Halonen when she was there: http://www.nyan.ax/nyheter/?news_id=64669&news_instance=2#.Tkdlba9_TAA.email also this link:
