The onset of magnetic order in thin Fe films on and embedded in copper was studied. The local moment paramagnetic states of the Fe films up to 8 ML thickness at finite temperatures were taken into account, as well as the growth of magnetic correlations and the onset of magnetic order. Furthermore, it was possible to extract intra- and interlayer "exchange" interactions and features of the electronic structure which set them up.
