Finlands government

Post by Wasa » 03 Jul 2002 07:10

Hi,

I`m new to this board, just want to say it looks promising. Is there a site, or has someone got detailed information about Finlands governments from 1936 to 1946? I`m interested in all ministers with names and dates of their careers..

Just a few corrections (spelling mistakes, mainly "oe"s instead of "ö"s, I would use "o" and "a" if there is no "ö" or "ä"):

Ehrnrooth, Leo
Kotilainen, Vainö
Möller, Dr. Carl Gustav
Rangell, Johan Wilhelm "Jukka"
Tanner, Vainö
