Finnish Research: Getting StartedEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Back to Finland Portal Page►
Begin with family and home sources. Your home is an important source of family history. Look for these items and other similar sources.
- Birth, marriage, and death certificates,
- Family Bibles
- Family records
- Journals, diaries, and letters
- Old photographs
- Obituaries and newspaper clippings
Next ask your relatives for any additional information they may have. It is likely that your second cousin, great-aunt, or other relative already has some family information.
Organize the information you find, and record it on pedigree charts and family group records.
