The Emigrant Register

The Emigrant Register was established in 1989 as a service for genealogists and the descendants of Finnish emigrants.The foundation of the Register was a part of the Delaware 350 Anniversary, to commemorate the beginning of Finnish Emigration to North America. Sources include passport records (from the year 1890 up to 1920), passenger records of the Finnish Steamship Company (from the year 1892 up to 1950) and information on Finns deceased abroad (from 1918 up to 1950). The Register receives a large number of enquiries from abroad as well as from Finland.
