He is self educated in genealogical research and sourcing.

Juha, the Appreciation Team thanks for you for efforts toward making our Shared Tree the best it can be with your 1000+ contributions during August 2019. You are an important part of what we are all about!

Actually, with all that you do, I'd be amazed if you didn't reach 1000. You are a superior WikiTreer and just a good person to boot.

Hi Juha,

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Stubbs-2408 needs a Military and War Badge for a living veteran. who was wounded in Vietnam War. I wrote on email to you, but may be lost in the scads of leader stuff you receive. I just advised him re: Pre-1700's last week, so he may not be ready for the google group.

Needs the special template for sticker for living veterans of Vietnam...
