Finally received my prizes. I had so much fun with the contest, the prize seemed secondary.

Congratulations to ranger for winning.

Thank you Highlander for sponsoring such a fun and different contest.

Love the site. I found videos for a couple of my favorite songs: Gasoline by Enter the Haggis and Loch Lomond by Runrig. I even suggested a video: Merchant Marine by Celtae, which has only about 4000 views in Youtube. It deserves a wider audience.

I wish to be cremated and my ashes spread by the wind from the top of a mountain or cliff that I have enjoyed the view live. The list of places keeps changing as I climb to new places. One of the latest is the elbow in the middle of the South Harper Creek waterfall shown hear.

One of great-grandfather Filpus's brother and his wife joined the Communist Party during the Great Depression. In the early 1930's, the Soviet Union recruited communists of Finnish ancestry to settle in Karelia, a former province of Finland, now part of the Russian Federation. The intent was to create a Red Finland, to create connections to influence the Finnish state. The Nils Filpus family took the offer and emigrated to Karelia in 1933. Their daughter Paula decided she wasn't going to Karelia, so she went to Trieste Italy and eventually moved back to the United States. In 1938, her parents disappeared and Paula never found out what happened to them.

In 1937-1938, the Soviets decided that the immigrants were a bad influence, since they had connections outside the Soviet Union, so they arrested the immigrants and executed them. The Soviets used a forest in the Sandarmoh woods near the town of Medvezhjegorsk as a execution ground. They dug trenches and lined up prisoners and shot them into their graves.

The existence of this secret massacre was hidden in the files of the KGB until after the fall of the Soviet Union. According to the KGB archive data, from August 11, 1937 to December 24, 1938 more than 9,500 people of 58 nationalities were executed by shooting and buried in the death trenches. The victims were Russians, Karelians, Finns, Ukrainians, Belorussians, Tatars, Udmurts, Jewish, Gypsies, Germans, Polish, Americans, and other nationalities.

A list of Finnish-American victims is at http://www.levonius.com/Laiho_List/Karelia...ictims_List.htm
The Filpus family now knows what happened to Nils and Elvira Filpus. Unfortunately, their daughter Paula died in 1987, never learning the truth.
