Ostrobothnian odysseys
This is a site - a work in constant progress - that will promote and publish original research, republish old articles and compile information pertaining to seafaring, shipbuilding, and emigration since the days of the trading of Ostrobothnian yeomen in the 1500's until the great Ostrobothnian emigration wave of the 1800's and early 1900's. In short, it is about journeys through the centuries, across the Baltic Sea, and across the oceans.
