When Leif Mether was administrator of Finngen, he and I worked on some articles about bomärken - there were pages of examples representing various parishes, and my own family was included. I have tried to find the articles on Finngen, but it's hopeless and I have no idea what happened to them. Does anyone know where there are other articles which show examples of those owner's marks?

Thanks. That gives some examples of them. The ones that I remember were on Finngen and had many pages of the marks along with owner's names and were arranged by parishes. After the Finngen archive was lost, I was never able to find the article and examples.. so I guess they are lost forever.

One page was found on genealogia.fi.


Do you June remember in what context the owner's mark collection was on genealogia.fi? I could take a look at the directory structures.

I've been searching through the Finngen pages and finally found it under FAQ - History - Owner's Marks:
http://www.genealogia.fi/faq/index.htm That's part of the website you found. I didn't remember that it was put in FAQ. Is there some way it can be put where it can more easily be found?

On that same FAQ - History page there are articles about Mantal by Kalevi Kiesi and Robert Plogman, as well as an article about land owning and farmers by Kalevi. Kalevi and I had many discussions about this and I suggested to Leif that it would be a good idea to include articles by Kalevi and Robert, and he agreed. I think they would be of interest to Finlander members, too.
