Research and Publications
The Research and Publishing Committee of the Finnish Amercian Historical Society of the West has documented the rich and varied culture of the Finnish-American communities. By collecting and studying oral histories, manuscripts, photographs and maps, Society volunteers have produced publications exploring and celebrating a bygone era.

Our society President authors a quarterly newsletter of local Finnish news and history. The newsletter is mailed to members homes and, during this trial period, we will also be making these newsletters avaiable for download from our site.

Publications available for download:
