Kaarina Halonen Gallery - Antti & Pekka Halonen

In September 2003 I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Kaarina Halonen. Although we haven't fully traced our genealogy roots yet, we came to the conclusion that we are somehow related. We had a lovely visit. Kaarina is a very gracious and gentle woman. She shared some of her family history with me and played songs on the kantele. She allowed me to take photographs of her and her father's and uncle's artwork. Here are some of the photos.
