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 2014 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.
Also included are persons whom I have found in the books of Juva, Kangasniemi, Rautalampi, and Saarijärvi. Research is not so complete for these parishes. Numerous persons from Heinävesi, Sulkava, Sääminki, and Leppävirta are included, but books from those parishes have not been examined.
There is now a big reduction in the price of the DVD. This web-site became too large and too difficult to use, and so now only the DVD will allow access to my data about the people of these Savo parishes.
The 2014 DVD lists the names and data for about 160,000 persons in both alphabetical and birth-date order. An example for a portion of one of these lists may be seen at 2014alphaOrder. This a large file and may take a while to load. Because the more recent complete files are much larger, they will not be available on this website. They are available 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 92,100 persons. The HTML files give DETAILS for every person found in the Rippikirjat or lastenkirjat and name parents and chlildren if they are known. Sukupuut/family trees become obvious.
An 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.
