Could you give me some information on the origin of the word nisu? Is it a Swedish word? When did pulla replace this word? I live in Ohio, and the Finnish… 1142 18.08.2009 According to the etymological dictionary of modern Finnish language the word “nisu” has an analogue in all of the near related languages. Karelian and Estonian languages have the word “nisu” and the Veps language “ńižu”. Also the Sami language knows the word “njizzi” which is apparently derived from the same origin. The word is most likely a derivative of a word that means breast or teat (the Finnish word “nisä”). The concept of this is that the product of the teat (which is white and sweet milk) has same qualities that the mild-flavoured grain (wheat). In the Finnish literary language “nisu” has appeared since Agricola and it has been the primary designation of wheat until the 19th century. The word “pulla” is a loan from “bulla” in the…

I would like to know the origin of the term 'Yellow Journalism'. 891 21.01.2009 The term "yellow journalism" was derived from Robert Outcault's comic strip "The Yellow Kid" around 1895.

I'd like to know about the Irish great famine in the 1840s. Also, I want to know about the causes and symptoms of potato blight. 1293 20.01.2009 The great famine of Ireland took place in 1845-1849, and it is said that about a million people died of hunger during those years. In the early 1840's around a third of Irish people depended on the potato as their main source of food, and thus the destruction of the potato harvest because of potato blight in 1845 launched a catastrophe.

How do I view marriage records 443 11.09.2006 You can’t view marriage records - if you mean official records which are kept by local register offices (maistraatti = http://www.maistraatti.fi/en/index.html ). They work together with The Population Register Center, which holds information on all Finnish citizens: (http://www.vaestorekisterikeskus.fi/vrk/home.nsf/pages/index_eng). From the church (parishes) you get literary information about their members but you have to know the parish where the person is living. To get information about an individual from these registers costs. Some public libraries hold collections of old parish registers (mostly from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries). You can find old marriage information on these microfilms, too.
