I am looking at some genealogy information and I came across the phrase "Henkikiroilla Herojassa 1692, 1695-1698"
The only translation I have come across is "Ghost books in Heroja" which is puzzling, if correct. Can anyone help me?
Thanks

Besides ghost, henki also means person :cool:
Henkikirja is census record.
Thus the phrase tells that someone was at Heroja according to the census of those years.
