Six questions - kuusi kysymystä

I got this meme or challenge from "Tositarinoita ja haavekuvia" blog. So you should ask me 6 questions. Not seven or five, but six. They can be any questions you like, no matter how weird - just ask them.

HAASTE: Kysy minulta kuusi kysymystä. Ei seitsemän tai viisi, vaan kuusi. Sillä ei ole väliä, kuinka turhia tai omituisia kysymykset ovat - kysy ne joka tapauksessa. Liitä tämä sen jälkeen omaan päiväkirjaasi ja katso, mitä sinulta kysytään.

Jään odottamaan - I shall be waiting....


Cycling season started

My husband and my brother went cycling Easter Sunday. As you can see, still some snow there on the background but most of the roads are already dry.


Thinking of birds

Spring is near and it's the time to think about the birds. I wonder whose nest this is?

Finding family in USA

I found some relatives in USA last week.

My great aunt asked me to check if I could find her second cousins from the Finnish church books. I did, but many of them had moved to USA in the beginning of last century. Thanks to Ellisisland.org and ancestry.com websites I was able to find some of them. They had moved from Jalasjärvi, Finland to Minnesota Iron Range area.

I found their descendant Rita, who is my father's third cousin. It was so intresting to read from her mails what things are special to our family, like the musical talent. She told me that her grandfather Axel (Akseli) had played the violin.
