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 Genealogical Society of Finland offers various web services for use of genealogists and family historians.
The Genealogist's Sources
Digitization has revolutionized genealogy and thanks to this its popularity is growing all the time. A significant part of the basic sources are now available in digital format and you can access them straight from your home. Many other resources can also be found online that genealogists can use in their research.
The Genealogist's Online Store has available for purchase the Society's own publications as well as other family, personal and local historical publications. The online store is also used to register for educational events.
