Database search for registered users

Registered users have access to all the information in the emigrant databases. The registration fee is 20 € per year (ca. US$26). Payment can be made through our Web Store

After the payment, the customer must register as a user by filling out a form. When the registration information has been sent, the user is notified by email and must confirm the registration by clicking on the link in the email. After this the database is accessible by the user id and password given in the registration information. These can be changed afterwards. If the email-registration fails, the user must contact the webmaster at the Institute of Migration.


 Registration (for those who have paid)

What do I get for the user fee?

Registered users have access to all the information in the following databases:

  • Passenger lists (318,000 records)
  • Passport records (278,000 records)
  • References to books and newspapers (19,000 records)
  • Register of Australian Finns (3,800 records)
  • Register of New Zealand Finns (1,100 records)
  • Finnish Russians 1930-1950 (8,000+ records)

NOTE! The payment also includes guidance and counseling for self-searching the databases of the Institute. Instead, the payment DOES NOT include the actual database search conducted by the genealogist or other personnel of the Institute. Such a search costs 30-60 euros depending on the time spent and the amount of information found. Of this work a separate invoice will be sent to the customer.
