What is genealogy?
Genealogy is the study of family histories and the tracing of their lineages. Genealogy is an engaging and fulfilling hobby that thousands of Finns get swept up into. History becomes novel and personal through genealogy - it is often said to bring a completely new viewpoint into history.

The HisKi database helps you search the history books of parishes for lists and details on baptisms, marriages and burials.
