I, like I think many doing Finnish research wish they spoke, understood, and could read Finnish. It would make this so much easier. Let alone writing it.
Its so frustrating. My grandmother never had the pastients to teach her 3 grandchildren including me, her native language which she spoke (to her friends, and family in Quincy, CT, and other places in MA)frequently.
until her death in 1978.
She could speak and understand English(self taught I think with fathers help) but writing it was a challenge for her.
