The database does not include information from all of Finland’s parishes, because all history books have not yet been included. New parishes are added as soon as the data becomes available. The data included in the history books has been put into a database and standardized so that searches are possible. The data is intended only for searches and not to replace the original history books or their hand written copies (“black books”). The data may include mistakes and all information should be checked from the original source.
Note that the database does not include events from the last hundred years.
