Family research has resulted in two new cousins, and countless family stories, that have inriched my life. I've used internet sites i.e. Mormon site, Michigan Family Groups, Cokato Museum, this Genealogy.com and Ellis Island site.
Found out my Father really is 100% Finnish, but a Niva through nurture, not blood...Jurva by blood. That my Great-great-great Grandpa is John Hart 1st governor of New Jersey, and signer of the Declaration of Independence.
Fun and exciting stuff...can't wait to learn more.
