RE: Rissanen
I think they may be related. A quick search on ancestry.com showed that their great great grandfather was named August Rissanen, from Finland (not sure where, I don't have access to the immigration records) His wife's name was Riika, they settled in St Louis County in Minnesota. August was born in 1878, and it says he came to the US in 1899. He may have come through Canada. My friends descend through August's son, Eino Walter Rissanen. Like you said, they may be related to you! :)

RE: Aliina Rissanen
Hi! I have some high school friends (who live in MN) who have he last name Rissanen. It's not a common last name here.
