My Name is Robert A. Saastamoinen, web master,.This genealgy was started some 60 Years Ago by my father after WWII,the purpose was to find his family in Finland..The result was 25 years of researdh by my father.and the balance with the use of PC"smainly after my retirement I kept the promise to continue this work
.I am dedicating this to my forefathers who cam before who made the sacrifices they made so we can enjoy the the freedom as a family we have in the United States.Those of ourf amily that came to the US Canada and Australia,and especially to a dear cousin Alma Maria Neska Garcia my first cousin twice removed who gave me this proverb the last time I saw her before her deaath,. :IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO NOW WHO YOU ARE UNTIL YOU KNOW WHO YOUR WERE.
The earliest entry in this family is Markku Saastamoinen born about 1560.His decendance appearing on this history are 7240 people including the wives of family members and extended family.
This is the first of our family heritage that history files that I have placed on the internet with a web site as it has the finest features available .All it takes is time and a lot of ingenuity to apply these programs to your file.
Through this research I have had the opportunity to contact my cousins in Europe and ,Canada,or be contacted by others who are looking for their roots.
