Hi, Everyone!
They say there are no coincidencies in this world and it certainly proved true, when I googled Maira one day. One of the search results offered an option: Maera. In Greek mythology, Maera was the hound of Icarus, father of Erigone.

According to the myth:
"Icarus was a follower of wine god Dionysus and had been taught how to make wine. While travelling, Icarus met some drunken shepherds, who killed him. After getting sober next day the shepherds understood what they had done and buried Icarus' body. Erigone was worried about her father, and set off with her dog Maera to find him. Maera at last discovered his grave, and both became so overwhelmed with grief that Erigone hanged herself and Maera leapt off a cliff. According to the Greek poet Nonnos, Maera declined to leave the grave and was starved to death. Upon hearing the news, Dionysus placed them in the sky as the constellations of Virgo (Erigone), Boëtes (Icarus) and the dog star, Sirius (Maera)."

In the remembrance of Maera, the eternally devoted dog, I'll do my best posting photographs of as many gravestones as possible in the Kanta-Häme area in the Southern Province of Finland.

Hautamuistomerkit pikku hiljaa katoavat ajan ja säiden kuluttamina, joten toivon osaltani voivani tallentaa tätä puolta kulttuurihistoriaamme tuleville sukupolville.

"Hallinto-oikeus kumosi tietosuojalautakunnan päätöksen - hautakuvat saavat olla internetissä (5.2.2010 6:45).
Helsingin hallinto-oikeuden mukaan hautausmaiden hautamuistomerkeissä olevat tiedot on nimenomaan tarkoitettu kenen tahansa nähtäviksi, joten hautakivet ja niissä olevat tiedot voi julkaista esimerkiksi internetissä. Oikeuden perustelujen mukaan kysymys ei ole sellaisesta yksityisyyden suojasta, jota henkilötietolaissa tarkoitetaan."

Ystävällisin terveisin, Maira

Hei

Mysteeri ratkaistu! Hyvin päätelty, että mistä etsiä ne ratkaisevat tiedonhippuset.

Terveisin Kaustinen

RE: Sefanias Grönlund
Hei

Varmaan olet oikeassa. Aika sotkuiset sivut tuolla Hauholla. Hyvä, että olet tarkkana, kun minä keittelen sukujuurisoppaa! Yleensä minulla jossain vaiheessa alkaa kellot kilkattaa, että jokin on nyt pielessä, mutta tällä kertaa niin ei käynyt. Siksi onkin hyvä, että voidaan tehdä yhteistyötä, niin virheet ehkä vähenevät.

RE: My Glader-relatives
Thank you ! But I think there was some problem?
On Karl Edvard Glader profile I cant go to his spouse Matilda Maria Lervik Glader (1870 - 1953)

And if I watch Matilda Maria Lervik Glader profile there is 2 "Matilda Maria Lervik Glader" as her spouses? Hm.

And on Hertta Lemmitty Kuisla Glader profile I can't press on "Erik Knut Glader (1907 - 1973)". I get an error here as well.
And if I search on Erik Knut Glader there is no spouses in his profile.

Hm, can you please check this out and see what the problem is? :)

Thanks!

RE: Gröndahlit
Hei

Ihan oikeassa olet! Nuo talon nimet meni minulla väärinpäin:( Henrikan äidin syntymä on varmaan jäänyt hukkuneelle paperilappuselle ja pappi on sitten jälkikäteen muistellut, että lapsonen syntyi ehkä toukokuussa 1809 :)

Näitä hautakivien henkilöiden taustoja on kiva selvittää. Sopivia pikku pähkinöitä purtavaksi! Tässä tulee samalla hyvää harjoitusta. Aluksi lähettelin omien esivanhemien tietoja, mutta kuten sukututkimuksessa on tapana homma tuppaa laajenemaan suuntaan jos toiseen.

Finnish relatives
Maira,

I am seeking your assistance to find further information on my Finnish relatives. I do not speak Finn, so run into issues finding the correct cemeteries to continue my search.

My grandmother was born in Kuortane, Finland. Her name was Maria Ilona Hernesmaa and she was an infant when she left with her mother, Alena Kaaranka (married to Matt Hernesmaa/Hernesman). I am hoping to find more clues to my Finnish roots. Alena's sister, Sanna Kaaranka (married to Paavola), returned to Kuortane, Finland and I believe that she was buried there with her parents.

Any assistance you can offer would be great. At this point I am thinking about learning Finn so that I can research (this is only one line of several of Finnish origin on my side & my husbands).

Thank you.

Hello Maira, I see that you added a flower to this man's site in Forest Lawn, Norfolk VA some time ago.
I have usually been adding a little something about the Unknowns listed on the Seamen's Friend Stone there--making them an 'honorary Virginian' because they are resting here in Tidewater...But if you know this man or his family; that they are from Finland etc. I will leave "well enough alone" as they say.
Edna
ps, My husband's grandmother's family of Anton Mattson and Maria Hietamaki immigrated from Jalasjarvi, Finland (late 1890's) and settled in Chippewa County, Michigan--lots of his distant cousins are still in Michigan (big family!); but he has never met any.
