As I mentioned on June 1, 2020 – Each Day of June, a Different Record Collection Will Be Free! – MyHeritage May 31, 2020, MyHeritage is offering a different free collection every day this month. Today’s free collection – the Finland Church Census and Pre-Confirmation Books, 1657-1915: – https://www.myheritage.com/research/collection-10509/finland-church-census-pre-confirmation-books-1657-1915. They are only free today so if you have Finnish ancestors who lived in Finland between 1657 – 1915, it’s worth checking out. Tomorrow is U. S. City Directories – https://www.myheritage.com/research/collection-10705/us-city-directories. I referenced this collection with a post earlier today – Åland Archipelago, Finland — World’s most beautiful places — From The Darkness Into The Light as I thought the two were related.
