Question 1[edit | edit source]

Question 1: Has this collection been indexed using the patronymic naming system?
Answer 1: Not all of the indexes are based on the patronymic naming system. For example, batches C45206-1, C45212-1, C45198-1 for the county of Uusimaa did not follow that system. To search for a child, use the parents’ names and child’s first name. Leave the child’s surname blank.
