Research has been done in the church books of Pieksämäki, Haukivuori, Jäppilä, Kangaslampi, Suonenjoki, Joroinen, and Rantasalmi. To view the results for the books examined for the 2016 dvd, click here. Savon Asukkaat includes every legible name that I have found in the church books. Syntyneet and vihityt files (and HisKi data) have also been studied thoroughly to record vital records.
An Example of what may be learned about members of a family may be found here. You can see how a "sukupuu" becomes possible.
Also included is information about persons found in the books of Juva, Kangasniemi, Rautalampi, and Saarijärvi. Research is not so complete for these parishes. Numerous persons from Rautalampi, Karttula, Heinävesi, Sulkava, Sääminki, Kuopio, and Leppävirta are named, but books from those parishes have been little examined.
The 2016 version on DVD or USB drive will list the names and data for 174,000 persons in alphabetical and birth-date order and can also be seen in these links. These files are ca. 50MB and may take a short time to download.
Notes found in the communion books about persons have been recorded for EVERY time that any person was found in the books. The SAVON ASUKKAAT HTML files report these notes. There are notes for more than 101,000 persons. Although 174,000 are named, many of these died young, or had not attained communion age at the time of the most recent book researched, or moved away, etc.
The HTML gives DETAILS for every person found in the Rippikirjat or lastenkirjat and names of parents and children if they are known. The 2016 version allows screen display of four ancestral generations.
Maps and other lists to assist genealogical research (sukututkimus) in Savo are included.
