That i find very interesing. I mean, who my ancestor really were? Maybe..artists? Workers? aristocrats?
One thing i know about my great grandmom. She was in engaged with very rich horseman, but that man died in horse accident, in Karelia.
And from my fathers side. That wan new to me, heard it year ago. Maybe told you, too? But now, gonna tell one more time. So, in 1800s our family name was Stordell. Our family lived in Germany. So, i have some German blood in me, nice. When our family came here, in Finland, they changed their name Uittamo. That means "to float the logs" My last name really came from that. Because my family float the logs. So, Finnish name came from that. Real family name was Stordell.
So, who were they?And where they lived? Why they came here? That´s something, that i wanna know some day. Sooo interesing. What characteristics I have from my ancestors? Do I have a change to visit those places, where my both familys are from? That, would be awesome.
Sometimes, i belive, one can learn from past.
Hmm, really makes my imagination fly! ;)
