Many Juntunens moved to the U.S.A. and Canada at the end of 1800's and at the beginning of 1900's. The book gives the roots for the descendants of these people.

The book is written in Finnish but the family tables are easy to follow by any. There is plans to write an English addentum but there is no decisions yet.

Part III of the Family book series

We continue collecting family data. Our aim is to get as so complete product as possible from year 1900 until today. There exists many problems with the opus: The family is spread wide all over the world, many family sheets will consist of living people and the society needs the permission to publish the data in this kind of opus.

The society has already collected large amount of data but we continue collecting as aim to get the opus as covering as possible. We wish to get also stories and photos because without them the opus will be only the skeleton of family sheets. Especially the stories of the emigrants would be interesting. You can send the data by snail mail using this sheet. Or you can sen the data also by email, the email is considered as your permission to publish the data. It is important that your data has connection with some family table in the Family book II.
