Results of thorough research of the riipikirjat or lastenkirjat of Pieksämäki, Haukivuori, Jäppilä, Kangaslampi, Suonenjoki, Joroinen, and Rantasalmi are reported. The file includes many persons from Juva, Kangasniemi, Rautalampi, and Saarijärvi, and some from Karttula, Heinävesi, Sulkava, Sääminki, Kuopio, and Leppävirta.. To view a summary of the results, click here . Syntyneet and vihityt files (and HisKi data) have also been studied to record vital records.
The major changes from the 2016 version are that 100% of the persons (11,160) from the Pieksämäki 1890-1899 RK are recorded, and much data from the 1870-1879 RK of Haukivuori has been added. The Haukivuori research will continue.
For EVERY instance that any person was found in the church books, notes were recorded and the SAVON ASUKKAAT HTML file reports these notes. There are notes for more than 105,100 persons, including their parents and children. There are actually 180,000 persons named, but because many of these died young, or had not attained communion age at the time of the most recent book researched, or moved away, etc., no notes exist for them.
The (DVD or USB flash drive) will list the names and vital record data in .pdf format for all 180,000 persons in both alphabetical and birth-date order. Because these lists are so large and slow to download, they are no longer available on this site. Please purchase the disc and copy it to your computer to have satisfactory performance. I am willing to transfer parts of the data to you, without charge, using wetransfer.com. I will also prepare sukupuut or descendent charts for 10 euros each.
