Research Finns - Finnish not required; Internet is!
Finland is a wonderful place to research a family. Frequently there are church records going back to the early 1700s if not earlier. There is a heritage of families remaining in a community for generations, until they emigrated. Many of the online resources have wonderful English-language interfaces (though the records are in Finnish or Swedish depending where in the country your ancestors lived) and just in case needed, there are a plethora of Finnish research aids and on-line machine translation services. And, Finland is probably one of the easier countries to research female ancestors in! Almost always, the female is listed with at least a patronymic for her father and sometimes she will be listed with her maiden name! We’ll explore at least 6 online Finnish resources that you can access in your jammies, anytime you want.
