Lahti was once Peralahti which came from Village of Peralahti. I have tried to find that village on a map of Finland. The Parish Was Kuortane. Is there maps with more detail in the libraries from the early 1900s? Thank you

The National Library of Finland has an excellent collection of maps. More detail and contact information can be found on their website: http://www.lib.helsinki.fi/english/services/collections/mapcoll.htm
The Helsinki City Library has one book in its collections that is specifically about the parrish of Kuortane. The book was published in 1932 and also includes a map. Information regarding interlibrary loans can be found here: http://www.lib.hel.fi/en-GB/kaukopalvelu/
