Finnish Cemeteries
Cemetery records are not usually used in genealogical research in Finland, because there are death records in the church books of most parishes. About 40 cemeteries have been published in the Year Book of the Genealogical Society of Finland. Most of them are from parishes where church records were destroyed.
