I'm trying to search information about relatives that live in Ingria pre WWII (< 1940). I know that is a difficult area as many churchbooks was destroyed, in the time before the war and during the war. Maybe there are some others that look into the same things and have some pieces of information.
My family name is Kapanen and came from venjoki area, but I do not know the actually village.
As my father is dead since 20 years back and was the last person with good knowledge I am out of resources and I was not smart enough at that time when he lived to gather all the information that he had.
