I am searching for ancestors in Finland. My geneology program (DisGen) includes a database of geographic names for Sweden, but I would like to fins the same for Finland also. Please tell me if you know where I can find names for all countys (län), smaller countys (kommun), parishes (församlingar) etc in Finland.

One list is "under construction" on Delphi, see this article (http://delphi.eget.net/index.php?Finlands%20kommuner). Many of the municipalities and cities have their web pages indicated. Also the SFHS web site at
this link (http://sfhs.eget.net/swedefinn.html) has a collection of information about the "Swedish-Finn" municipalities: web pages, email and snailmail -addresses to the different parishes, language statistics etc.
