I am glad to inform you that I am about to write a book titled „ My .Ugrimugri.“ Estonians use this term to refer to Finno-Ugric things or activities seen from a more humane and even funny point of view. It is like another side of a deeply scientific Fenno-Ugric coin, the one that is closer and more understandable to us.
The book consists of deeply humane and weird incidences, which should reflect the essence and soul of Finno-Ugric people.
Hereby I am asking for your assistance – your memories, experiences – in order to draw a possibly genuine picture of the Finno-Ugric people. Please write on my email - rein.sikk@eesti.ee about your experiences and funny incidences connected with the following Finno-Ugric characteristics:

• Modesty
• Individualism
• Fear of extinction
• Phlegmatism
• Joy of singing, dancing and making music
• Wearing national costumes
• Special and strange food
• Passion of collecting any kind of things
• Work addiction
• Mysticism and shamanism
• Craftiness
• Loyalty of home place and local legends
• Seeking the mysterious Finno-Ugric thing
• Preference of process over the result
• sth more you consider important.....

Naturally, I am not expecting you to send me notes about everything. But even a single hint or detail is important. And please add, if you let me use your name in case of quoting or paraphrasing. If you choose to remain anonymous, I will respect your wish.
You may write me in English, Russian, Finnish, Estonian – these are the languages I more or less understand. I can’t promise you that I use all the material I get, but what I can promise is that I will read it all through carefully.
Thank you for finding the time to read it all. Thank you also in advance if you decide to answer my letter. I will keep you posted about the state of affairs. Right now the deadline for my script is the end of April.

Wishing you luck,
Rein Sikk

I am not sure if you still working on your book, but it sounds really interesting! 

I am Hungarian, I live in Estonia, and I have some Finno-ugric friends from Russia as well. :) If you still collecting experiences, I can write you some of mine.

good luck with your work, and if you are ready with the book, I will need it.
