I have been quite intensively researching ancestors and relatives some last years. Recently I have spread my research to Maine, for there have to live some people, whose not-so-distant ancestors are from my nearby munincipalities.

Especially I try to collect my Niskanen branch, but there are also other surnames too.

For I have already got much of help here, thanks to especially Chris Dunham, I would like to try to help anyone there at Maine finding your Finnish ancestors. Also, I have found that saving history for the future generations is important, as I have experience of losing majority of my own history memories. History becomes then important once you first lose it...

With best regards from Finland,
