Jane Westerlund passed away, February 2010 at an age of 85. She was an eager
person to find out her rootes in Finland. She found one of our most genealogists
Christine Slätis and visited Finland and her grandmothers commune Lappträsk
twice during 1990-ies.
As late as during last summer I mailed with her and got the answers through her
son Kevin from whom I wait for details about the family for our genealogy.
We convey our condoleances from Finland, Eimer Wasström/RW

new gravesides and decorated the grave by a lantern collecting
energy during daytime and being ignited after dark. We are proud
to present this almost 160 years old grave.
An inaugural ceremony will take place on the 1st of November
at 16 hours on the All Saint´s Day at the grave.
