Re: Nevala/Nevalainen from Finland
I dont know if this will help, but there is a story that has been passed down from generation to generation that one of my Nevalas that came from Finland was givin land and that it was from the Neva river. I am only 21 and have just started looking into my families past. My grandfather was Raymond Nevala (died in 1990), his wife was Barbara Nevala (died in 1999), they had 3 children, Paulette Nevala/Wolfe (lives around marquette MI) Edward Nevala (lives in Anniston AL) and David Nevala who I havent been able to locate, but i know that he is diabetic and was in the Air Force and was divorced and has a daughter. If you can help pleace get back with me.
