The Vital Record Index databases are not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records although some sub-indexes (an index to a set of records within the database) have been found. When we identify a sub-index, we remove it from the database and post it separately on FamilySearch under its appropriate title.

For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 2001, some of the entries were published on 1 CD by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the "Scandinavia Vital Records Index: Finland." This is an index of some births or baptisms throughout Finland. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region. Some of this information is also found in the International Genealogical Index (IGI).

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sponsored the indexing of this collection to help individuals find information about their ancestors.

+
Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Finland.

== How to Use the Record  ==
+
 
+
Use this index to help you learn more about your ancestors. The information could help you identify family relationships and lineages as well as direct you to original records of your ancestors, which may contain additional information.
+
 
+
In birth or christening records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.
