Genealogy
Finnish term or phrase: tuli
Following birth info for my ancestor, a Finnish parish record states:
"tuli 25.1.1913 Viipurista"
This phrase is followed by marriage and death information for him. The closest term I've found is "tulli" meaning fire. What could this "tuli" be in reference to?
