Kansanen Family Reunion, July 29th, 2023
Kansanen Family Reunion will be held in July 29th, 2023 in KUOPIO!
KANSANEN FAMILY REUNION, JULY 29th, 2023, KUOPIO!
After the pandemic break, we will gather among relatives for a family reunion on Saturday 29th of July, 2023 in Saana, Kuopio (https://www.kuopionsaana.fi/). This family meeting has an interesting program again (as always), but this time it's very special. We have gotten one of perhaps Finland's most prominent genealogists to start with Genealogy - and what's most interesting - specifically the genealogy of Kansanen Family.
Genealogist Ari Kolehmainen (pictured) has been doing genealogical research from one side to the other for twenty years. He has a degree in Finnish history (FM) and ten years of work experience in archives. At the beginning of 2018, Kolehmainen founded a company offering genealogical and historical research services (https://www.menneenjaljet.fi/), which offers professional and customer-oriented research for various needs.
The Kansanen Family is a client of Kolehmainen - and we have given him the assignment to find out Johan Kansanen's previous steps before Johan's arrival in Sortavala. Kolehmainen will now tell our family reuinon about this research - guaranteed to be interesting!

You can get to know Kuopio and its beautiful scenery in summer by taking an inland cruise. There are so many options that this time we won't even try to organize a joint cruise, but everyone can choose the one that suits them according to their taste - even in suitable groups. Cruises departing from the port of Kuopio are offered by Roll Risteilyt and Koski-Laiva Oy. You can also hop aboard the M/S QUEEN R from the Saana pier in Bellanranta at 4:30 p.m., but this must be announced in advance - those who have booked a cruise on the Queen will be responsible for the stopover request themselves!
