My deceased mother was Finnish and I am interested in determining her ancestors who lived in Finland. Could you please provide me with on-line e-mail links to sites where I could request birth records, death records, marriage records, etc? Any help you could give me would be much appreciated.

The parish records are the main information sources for genealogists in Finland. Our church legislation resticts however the free use of information concerning events from the 20th century, so
it can be difficult to find information about a person who was born so recently as your mother must have been.

You will probably anyway find something of interest on the HisKi- Church Records database on the Genealogical Society's webbsite, if your search concerns ancestors born more than a hundred years ago. The adress is http://www.genealogia.fi/index.php?lang=en

Please don't hesitate to turn to the Genealogical Society for help. You can also send a request to the Population Register Centre in Helsinki. Their adress is:
