Sandy Here is a genealogy for Big Louie Moilanen. He is a descendent of
Antti Moilanen 1550 as documented in Mikko Moilanen's book and would be a
distant relative of the Otter Lake Moilanens. He is also a distant
relative of the Otter Lake Pyykkonens. I am in contact with the
descendents of Enock Pyykkonen. I have some info on the Otter Lake
families. Margaret smith
