Results of thorough research of the riipikirjat or lastenkirjat of Pieksämäki, Haukivuori, Jäppilä, Kangaslampi, Suonenjoki, Joroinen, Kangasniemi, and Rantasalmi are reported. The file includes many persons from Juva, 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.
Notice that new results are available about Haukivuori to 1879 and the eastern part of Kangasniemi up to 1814.
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 maybe 130,000 persons, their parents and children. There are actually about 188,000 persons in my database, but because many died young, or had not attained communion in the years of the most recent communion book or moved away, etc., no notes yet exist for many.
THIS IS NEW! ALL persons whom I have found in RKs or LKs or those born after 1860 may be found here in a HTML file similar to what has been on the dvds (only ca. 174,000 persons). My web host does not permit a larger number; I hope to find an institution that will host my full results.
I may be able soon to include lists which will list the names and vital record data in .pdf format for all 188,000 persons in both alphabetical and birth-date order. These lists are so large and slow to download; perhaps we can find an institution that will "house" the data.
You should purchase the disc and copy it to your computer to have satisfactory performance for lists. I will also prepare sukupuut or descendent charts for 10 euros each and send them to you by e-mail.
Maps and other lists to assist genealogical research (sukututkimus) in Savo are included on the DVD.
