We all have relatives who we don’t know. I have lots of them since my parents are both parts of large families.
Who are these people? What year was it? Where are they at? Is this spot the foundation of a home in French Lake MN? Why are they standing near a photograph of my Great Great Grandmother Briita Liisa and her third husband?
Perhaps they are all Leinonens…cousins! Someday we may know. I got a nice email from Ardelle one of the Leinonen relatives who offered to give us a tour of the French Lake and Annandale areas where most of the Leinonen’s settled.
At the end of the month I will attend a genealogy seminar. I have some more research I would like to attempt.
I urge you all to drag out your old photos and make sure they are marked with the Who? What? When? Where? ...perhaps you should put it on your to do list this winter!
