Collecting folklore

The Folklore Archives is happy to receive examples of oral tradition either in manuscript, photographic or recorded form. Everyone interested in recording folk tradition is welcome to send us material. The Folklore Archives collects folk tradition in a number of different forms (e.g. stories, folk beliefs, spells, games, jokes, songs, proverbs, life histories), recollections of holy festivals and / or special days and oral history about people's everyday lives.

Information about ongoing collections can be found on the Collecting pages (only in Finnish). For more information, please contact:
