I've had some interesting requests for research help the past 10 days... one from Austria and the other from North Carolina. And after searching back 8-10 generations for both of them, I began to see familiar names such as Caino, Torp, Wirkkala, Friis, Sursill.. and my calculations show that both people are related to me.. and both of them are related, even though they don't know each other. It's been a flurry of activity sending charts to them, etc.

And I've received info. from Finland that I'm related to Kimi Matias Räikkönen... a race car driver! I've never heard of him, but assume he's known among the sports crowd. :)
