Hello my name is Eric Pelto. My original last name was Peltomää. I have been fallowing a druid pagan path for the last year and wanted to start looking into my bloodline. I am 1/4 finnish. I shearched for books about Finnish mythology and folklore but only found two books here. One was the child's version of the Kalevala and the other was Finnish magic from Llewellyn publishing. I hope to make it to Finland at some point,but it will be a bit since my youngest is only 8 months. I am interested in learning about the Finnish gods and traditions.
I live in North Carolina in the states. My grandfather, who is 100% Finn, lives in the upper peninsula of Michigan. His father moved her from Finland. Want to do some more research on where he came from in Finland.
