Is there a way to look up information about someone that currently lives in Finland if I only know their name; that is in English and on the Web?
To trace someone in Finland try to find that person's address on the Population Register Centre's database. Browse their homepages on http://www.vaestorekisterikeskus.fi/vrk/home.nsf/pages/index_eng.
Our data protection legislation permits everyone to
to forbid the disclosure of his or her personal information by the population registration system for purposes such as direct advertising, so you might not find the information your want. The access to other public records is restricted also.
You may still find the portal for public sector services useful. Try the index on the upper right side of the page. The address is http://www.suomi.fi/english/
