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 2015 dvd, click here. The Savon Asukkaat DVD includes every person whom I have found in the church books. Syntyneet and vihityt files (and HisKi data) have been studied thoroughly to record vital records.
An Example of what may be learned on the DVD about some 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 not been examined.
For the parishes Pieksämäki and Jäppila, Rantasalmi and Kangaslampi, Joroinen, and Suonenjoki, ALL persons found in the most recent communion book studied are listed here in (English) alphabetical order. Nearly 100% of the persons living in these parishes in that time period are named, but notes about them are found only on the dvd.
All 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 on the DVD report these notes. There are notes for more than 99,000 persons. The HTML file gives DETAILS for every person found in the Rippikirjat or lastenkirjat and names parents and children if they are known. Sukupuut/family trees become obvious. SukunimetLukumäärä.
Another example of what notes might exist for a person are here.
Maps and other lists to assist genealogical research (sukututkimus) in Savo are included on the dvd.
