Our goal is to support research and collaboration on profiles of Finnish Heritage or Origin, and to foster connections among researchers with common interests and the development of shared resources to advance these aims. We aim to be an asset to the Wikitree community and to Finnish Genealogy in general. We encourage development of Name and Place studies pertinent to Finnish Roots.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Andrea Rezabek.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Add the Finnish Roots template to profiles that have Finnish heritage or lived in Finland.
  • Start a One Name Study for your Finnish Surnames
  • Start a One Place Study for a location of interest to your genealogy research

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message.

There is a problem with surnames, because before ~1900 in many cases only house names were used as 'surnames'. It could change every time a person moved to a new place/house. Eastern Finland were different, there also women had their fathers' names from birth to death.
