Tervetuloa! Hello and welcome.
My name is Kent Randell. I grew up in Northern Michigan and will always be a yooper, no matter where I live. My heritage is mostly Finnish, with a little Sami (1/16 + fractions). With the exception of one great-grandfather from Isojoki, my ancestors come from about the 65th parallel (near the Arctic Circle) and farther north. I currently live in Lincoln, Nebraska and I am working as a contractor for the state of Nebraska.
I've done my best to be accurate, if you see any errors, please let me know.
I have posted my family
tree and a list of surnames, and included a resource center for Finnish Genealogy Internet sites.
