Hi! Nice to see someone replying!!! Well, I've been researching (as a hobby) the family Paananen from Kinnula, Kivijarvi, Finland. I am sure that there has been a lot of relatives who emigrated in America about hundred years ago, but right now I am interested in Johannes Paananen (b. 27th Jun 1871 in Kinnula, Kivijarvi, Finland) I guess he has moved America and died there too. I don't have any other information for him but his father was Heikki Paananen (1839-1884) and mother Brita Lena Heinonen (1846- ). I know lots of ancestors for them and this Johannes was a brother for my fathers grandfather, Oskar Paananen (1873-1930). Where from Finland did your ancestors came from? Just let me know. Perhaps I have some infos you dont have and vice versa.

P.S. Yesterday was a historical day here in Finland. Finland got her 1st female president yesterday...

Hello Bill Paananen,
My name is Maarit Toivonen from Savonlinna, Finland. I have been also looking my relatives.
My great grandmother was Tyyne Kähkönen (born Paananen, Ernest Paananen´s sister). I have some old churchpapers etc. and I found a letter from Toivo Tamminen to Yrjö Kähkönen (Tyyne`s son, my great uncle). Toivo writes that he visited in USA, Florida in 1991. He also writes that he met Yrjö´s relative, Bill Paananen, but Bill does not have any Ernest´s recordings. Now I wonder - are you the same man?

My english is terrible (I think), but I hope you understand me.
Waiting for reply Maarit

Hey Irv Paananen

Terve Marrit,
I just saw your posting about Ernest Paananen. I am a first cousin, twice removed, of Ernest. I just learned about him recently. I found much information about him, his daughter Tuulikki, and Ernest's siblings.

I recently bought a CD of Ernest's music from a company in Helsinki.

I do not know if you will receive this message after all this time. I know only a very few Finnish words. (probably 12).

Dear Paula,
I would love to correspond with you re Ernest & his siblings. I'm just aware of his siblings Carl & John, & would love to know more about their siblings, their father, etc.

Our ancestor Arvid Paananen, son of Abraham & Krsistina Narhi, was born in Viitasaari 1 Nov 1872 & we believe he's a 1st cousin of Ernest, Carl & John.

Would appreciate exchanging information & learning more of the Paananen connections
