    @whitenoise AKA rednose--my apologies for the typo..... Tuska 3 days of dancing with the devil! Nice line up especially with Marko playing. While at Copenhell, I saw a T-shirt (in black of course) that said "Black Is My Happy Color". Gotta get that for my non varied wardrobe. My older sister and I saw NW in Florida some years back and she asked me what she should wear...very simple answer---BLACK! Hope you have no pain at Tuska and only enjoy!

    @whitenose Greetings from Copenhell! Yes, love hockey, both NY Rangers and NY Islanders. Sad that Boston lost but it's nice the underdog team won. Would you know if hockey Kakko is related to Tony? Not sure how common a last name of Kakko is. I checked out the church of Kakko and will consider joining but need to first see if they are too holy roller. Thanks for the info ! It's good to be in the know. 🏒🏒🏒

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    @whitenoise Work Visa for Musicians The link above gives guidance for musicians trying to get into the States. You should be able to earn money here if you are granted the "work" visa. Your really big problem is a ONE WAY ticket...Trump won't let you in if you only have a one way ticket but maybe if you bring a rake with you and rake the forests he'll let you come and stay as long as you rake and rake and rake..... PS-Per my friend Juhani, Marko can't come to NY, he's very busy being a newlywed and working on his music for US!

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    @whitenoise I can ask my friend Juhani if he can be your tour manager. He is a music promoter living in NY now. He might have some tour manager experience. He is friends with Marko back from their days in Kuopio. I met Juhani at a record fair in Brooklyn a while back. He was wearing a T that had Kuopio on it. I'll see if he knows whether Marko can come to NY too. That would be fun! Here's info about the visas . Hurry and fill out the forms...let me know when completed! @hunebedbouwer You should come to NY too....

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    @whitenoise Karhupojat is such a cute name! Awwwwwwww..... Quite amazing who you bump into in these small towns.....Jorma Kaukonen, (Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna) John F. Kennedy Jr., Eicca Toppinen (APO) to name a few and in Helsinki my cousin Erikki who was cutting out of work and didn't know I was in town and my 2nd cousin Jukka (not THE Jukka) who was playing with his band that weekend. Jukka plays the sax in his jazz band. Mod Edit (dragonprincess): Moved from The Floor Thread to The Upcoming Nightwish album thread.

    @hunebedbouwer I say bring on the future championship matches for Finland to win fair and square. Work hard for things and they have a value. Netherlands....hmmmmm......all sorts of good things come to mind.....please expound upon the virtues of being a Netherlander! We humbly await! PS--Do they sell extra adult size mouth guards or just the children's variety???

    @Harvest I'm feeling the same happiness here! The game was fantastic! Finland finds itself in the underdog position and goes out to win, win and win again with not a single NHL player on it's team. It boils down to SISU the magical ingredient that we have in in our DNA!!! Such a proud day for me! Telling all my friends who don't follow European happenings but do know where my allegiance stands! Funny how I can understand rally driver English so very well! It's very similar to Finglish....... Finglish- "The term Finglish was introduced by professor Martti Nisonen in the 1920s in Hancock, Michigan, to describe a linguistic phenomenon he encountered in America. As the term describes, Finglish is a macaronic mixture of the English and Finnish languages.-wiki" Can you bear a vacation from hockey? Now it's time to start relaxing retreats to the kesämökki (summer cottage) for some sauna, swimming and having a few cold ones! Had a cold one myself last night.....off work today for a holiday...bet many Finns took a holiday today! Yeah SUOMI !!!

    DNA

    @whitenoise Thanks so much for the info. I don't think that Sarah speaks/reads Finnish. Her parentage is Finnish/Swedish and she was born in Malmö . She moved to the States when she was 8 years old. I'll translate some of the info from the Finnish website and since the other 2 are in English, she should be fine with her research. The National Archives website and the Population Centre websites look like they have a wealth of resources...time to check further into my own family! Thanks again! Greatly appreciated!

    DNA

    Question for my fellow Finns and anyone else who might know the answer. I got my DNA tested via Ancestry.com. A woman named Sarah reached out to me to see if we were related. We're possibly 3rd or 4th cousins according to Ancestry. Her message to me is as follows: "My mother was a war orphan the part of Muolaa Finland is now part of Russia (ceded to Russia after the war) the church was burnt down with records my Mother's name was Anja Marjatta Keistinen born in 5-15- 1933 she was one of 10 children I never met anyone of her relatives so I thought DNA could help me find relatives." The question I have is....were birth, death and marriage records only kept by the church or did the town, village or municipality also keep records of people? Are there any Finnish organizations or private companies available to do some research for her? Any websites that could help her out? Thank you to anyone who can help Sarah out! Greatly appreciated by me too!
