Hi, my name is Milla. My family is originally from Espoo, just west a little from Helsinki. My parents came here before I was born and we have kept in good contact with our family there.

But, as it turns out, we have family here too in the USA. It’s not clear yet, but it looks like they came over in the late 1800’s. I’m so excited to see if I can find them.

I then want to use my site on here to create a beautiful family heritage site for all of them.
I can’t wait for my family in Finland to see it and enjoy it.

If you don’t already know this one. The National Archives have extensive military records. Back in those days they were the best records keepers around (the military that is).

Here is the page that has the links but also tells you how to use them: http://www.archives.gov/research/military/index.html

Enjoy, Milla Laaksonen
