Hi Karen,

As our new group on Facebook, is to be used as an way to inform our members and others interested in genealogy, about what's happening within the society and the services we provide, we will try to use both finnish, swedish and english, depending on the language group the information tries to reach.

For example an educational event where everything is in finnish, will be announced only in finnish, an seminar where there is many speakers, using diffferent languages, will be announced in all languages.

I just joined the facebook group. However the profile it connected to was my grandson, Wesley Hakanen. My facebook is under Wes Hakanen. How do I connect the correct facebook profile to the Finnish Facebook pages?

June, Thank you. I rejoined the Society Facebook group and know my grandson and I both are members. It turns out that he was using my laptop and neglected to logout of his Facebook page. When I joined it connected his page. Thanks for your help. P.S. I have a friend whose Finnish surname is Palo.

There is a Palo farm in Karleby, but our family has never used the name Palo. I think the name can be found elsewhere, also.

Finnish actor Tauno Palo (1908-1082) was born Brännäs (there is a Brännäs farm in Pedersöre) he changed his name to Palo in the 1930ies and his descendants, some of them, also actors, have that name today. Nothing to do with the Palo farm in Karleby.

Of the Palo folks I know, I think nearly all of them came from the north - Oulu and the area to the east of Oulu.

I have found the village the Palos from this area came from and my friend whose name is Palo has shared information he has researched thanks to all. Also I am trying to do a new thread and can't seem to find the avenue to do one. What am I doing wrong?
