(I have to… 490 27.9.2010 Unfortunately, your question is so special, that you should obviously contact one or several special libraries. The libraries that come to mind in first order are the Library of Parliament and the Library of the Helsinki School of Economics. Both libraries are open to all users. You speak of ”budgetary institutions” in general. That field is very large – it seems to me that this term includes all kinds of institutions, financed by various states and by various international organizations. However, if you really should write on such a general level, there is a useful looking report in the Internet, published by the World Band in 2007.

Is it possible for me to find ancestor link for my mother, whose father's name is Kurt Nyland. My mother told me he was from Friesland, but I think the… 479 14.6.2004 Hi! Your grandfather's family name "Nyland" refers in Finland to the most southern parish of Finland (in finnish Uusimaa, in swedish Nyland, in english New Land). As a family name it does not appear in the telephone catalog of Helsinki metropolitan area, wheras names Nylander ("one who lives in Nyland") and Nylund ("new grove") do.
