I am looking for some birth records or anything on my Finnish ancestors from Teisko. My great-grandmother and great-great grandfather moved to the USA in 1909. My grandmother is 90 years old and wants to learn more about her family from Finland.
Can you tell me where I may be able to find this information?
Here are some useful addresses Institute of Migration in Finland (Siirtolaisuusinstituutti - Finland) http://www.migrationinstitute.fi/index_e.php
Institute has a service called The Emigrant Register for genealogists and the descendants of Finnish emigrants.
The Genealogical Society of Finland (Suomen Sukututkimusseura) http://www.genealogia.fi/index.php?lang=en
The parish records are the main information sources for genealogists in Finland. You will probably find something of interest on the HisKi- Church Records database on the Genealogical Society's webbsite, http://www.genealogia.fi/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1… . The best way to begin is probably to contact the Genealogical Society of Finland, http://www.genealogia.fi/index.php?option=com_contact&view=category&cat…
