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.

Record History

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 marriages 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).

Why This Record Was Created

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

Record Reliability

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.
