I always wondered how many farm names there were in Purmo so I compiled a list. Sometimes with HisKi I need to use a different spelling on a farm as they changed over time. See attached in pdf. The "A" farms are And:Ols:Stenvatten, Aspegrens, Adelsbacka, Andstensbacka, Alnäs, Aho, Ahlnäs.

Below the list of Purmo farms as they appear in land records 1875.
link to source (http://digi.narc.fi/digi/view.ka?kuid=22042)
Aspegrens was chaplain's residence. Lassfolk was called Kylänpää before 1830.
You may try to connect different spelling variations to these names :p

Other Vasa province farm names in 1875 can also be found here (http://digi.narc.fi/digi/hak_view.ka?hakid=327).
The parish names are listed in Finnish. The record contents are in Swedish.

There is a fairly good list of farm names by villages and parishes at the site of the Finnish Family History society's (Suomen sukuhistoriallinen yhdistys) wiki database: http://www.digiarkisto.org/wiki/index.php/Paikkakunnat. The society's main source seem to be the National Archive's tax census images.

The adress of their main home page is http://www.digiarkisto.org/sshy/.

The site is mainly in Finnish.

They have also a ambitious project where they try to digitize the communion books at the address http://www.digiarkisto.org/sshy/kirjat/arkisto/paikkakunnittain.htm, but I'm afraid this will come to big difficulties due to technical reasons.

Sune, see editing history of some of the pages :D

It's fairly easy to add more, but preferably by someone with a better touch of the parish in question.
