Welcome

FamilySearch Wiki is a community website dedicated to helping people throughout the world learn how to find their ancestors. Through the Finland page you can learn how to find, use, and analyze Finnish records of genealogical value. The content is variously targeted to beginners, intermediate, and expert researchers. Please visit the Contributor Help page to learn more about using the site. The Finland Page is a work in progress, your contributions and feedback are essential!

See the tutorials at FamilySearch Learning Center on Scandinavian Research and on Reading Scandinavian Gothic Handwritten Records.

Featured Article

Records of births, marriages, and deaths are commonly referred to as vital records because they refer to critical events in a person’s life. Civil registration is the vital records made by the government. Vital records of Finland have traditionally been kept by the church.
