Kivistö Cousins in Finland

Arja helped me find cousins from my grandmother's family. She had two meetings with the cousins. Most in the first meeting spoke only Finn. However, they gave her names of other cousins. After she contacted the second group, she found Leena who could speak English. The second meeting included Leena's family and Leena's mother. Leena is the great granddaughter of my grandmother's (Maria Kivistö) older brother Johan. Leena is the lady on the cover of this album. Many of the pictures in the album are from Arja's two meetings and from the visit to America by 9 of the cousins (from both sides, Mike's and John's wives families) during the summer of 2012. Also some of the Kivistö ancestors.
