You will find calendars and almanacs e.g. in bookshops. If you want to learn more about Finnish names, you might take a look at http://www.eponym.org/hq.html There are many Finnish name links and also a pronunciation guide.

|How do I view marriage records
||You can’t view marriage records - if you mean official records which are kept by local register offices (maistraatti = http://www.maistraatti.fi/en/index.html ). They work together with The Population Register Center, which holds information on all Finnish citizens: (http://www.vaestorekisterikeskus.fi/vrk/home.nsf/pages/index_eng).
From the church (parishes) you get literary information about their members but you have to know the parish where the person is living.
To get information about an individual from these registers costs.
Some public libraries hold collections of old parish registers (mostly from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries). You can find old marriage information on these microfilms, too.
