Dec 6, 2017, is the day Finland will officially celebrate its centennial as an independent country. In the lead-up to that momentous day, it is appropriate that Finland has a website with information about the centennial: Suomi Finland 100.
The page on that website that is very interesting to me is “One hundred years of Finland’s independence“.
It provides a 100-year timeline of events and developments year-by-year in Finland and elsewhere in the world.
By reviewing the timeline. I have greatly expanded my knowledge and understanding of the country of origin of my paternal grandparents.
Thanks to Cousin Matti in Finland for suggesting that I look at this website.
