Court records

Oldest Finnish court records ("tuomiokirjat") date back to middle ages, they are mostly documents about land and property cases. Until 1623 only some court records have preserved but after 1623 they are more frequently available. The reason for this is that on 1623 the Court of Appeal was founded in Turku and it requested local courthouses to send all court records to the Court of Appeal to be checked.
