View Full Version : Adoption 1900 or so

Good morning!

I am wondering if anyone has any idea how the adoption process worked in the early 1900's in Finland. My great-great grandparents adopted a child when her parents died. Were the children adopted by Godparents? Or did her parents work with/for my g-g-grandparents? Or were they related? I am really curious. Also does anyone have any information on the Lumijarvi name? The child adopted was Eeva Lumijarvi!

Also, can anyone tell me where Seivasniemi is?
