I am hoping someone can tell me how to find out how to get the email address of a Church Parish in Vasa. My Grandmother was born there, and I had posted a couple of times last year. I am now concentrating my search on information on the Family in Finland. Last year someone had emailed me privately with email addresses for the Parish, after I posted a scan of a church document I have here. Unfortunately, those addresses I was given are unrecognizable as email addresses. I was told that the churches will send information for a couple of generations for a set fee. Can anyone help me? I am at a loss as to how to proceed. Any help will be appreciated.

Just so you know... it is good that you have that document, but be aware that it is produced many years after the original notations in the christening / baptism books; mistake can, do and have occurred in the making of those "after market" documents... I did with one of mine, but it still "helped". At least, be aware that 66 years passed between the event and that document. In my situation, only 40 years had passed, and they made very BAD errors... it appears in mine, at least, they didn't know which line to look at in the church book, or had poor vision when they transcribed the information.

I'm sure that someone here will chime in soon with more info, I would hold off for a bit on any fees being transferred.

Unfortunately, because it is from Vaasa, and after 1855, you will need someone from the forums that can look into the baptism books for that parish as the data in NOT on HisKi.

Hi Henrik,
Thanks for so much information! So much more than I had hoped for. I have just one question, the last listing for Frans Albert Eklund, born 12 Sep 1863, you have date married as 30 May 1804. I'm thinking it might be 1904, but then that would make him 39 when married. I'm off now to look at old photos, to see if I can match names with faces. Again, thank you so much.

Thank you again. I am feeling very guilty about all the work you are doing, and I can't seem to figure out how to search on HISKI. Seems like I keep getting no records found, With the exception of verifying the results of someone who sent me the info of Mauritz Ekland & Eva - children Magnus Edvard, Gustav Magnus(tv), and a third child, twin of Gustav that died before christening. I am confused because you do not mention Gustav in your list.
I am also confused as you stated that both Frans Albert and Eva Erica lived long lives, but I cannot seem to find their death dates in the list you posted.
Please forgive my dumb questions, I am new to this, and I really do want to learn so I can do research myself. Thanks.

Hi Diane and Henrik
Attached gravestonepicture of Helmer Mauritz Eklund buried at Vasa cemetery. I think death date for Mauritz Eklund b.3.1.1825 is 3.11. or 13.11.1863, the death record was in bad shape and hard to read.
I dont know when Erica Eklund died but she lived atleast in 1905 so she must have been over 80 years.Didnt find any other gravestone pictures for this family on www.genealogia.fi/haudat
Frans Albert b.12.9.1863 married Maria Aura b.13.10.1876 in Mustasaari (Korsholm)
