Student registers are an important series of documents and used extensively in research. These registers contain basic information on all those who have studied (enrolled) at the University of Helsinki. No comprehensive information concerning the period of the Academy of Turku remains, but a database has been created with information on students from 1640 to 1852. Information on those studying between 1853 and 1899 is also available in a separate database. Student registers from 1900 to 1907 are PDF files.
The 19th-century student catalogues and registers are interesting not only as sources of genealogical research, but also in terms of other cultural and educational history: they provide micro-historical information on the period of the ascendancy of Finnish culture as well as on several influential Finns.
The Official Government Directory includes basic information on approximately 40,000 public authorities and government employees, and provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of Finnish public administration. The book also presents the diplomatic corps and the official bodies of the European Union. In addition, it includes an extensive list of academic degrees and titles as well as Finnish and international medals and decorations.
