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.
