Let $R$ be a commutative Noetherian ring and $\mathfrak{a}$ be an ideal of $R$. Suppose $M$ is a finitely generated $R$-module and $N$ is an Artinian $R$-module. We define the concept of filter coregular sequence to determine the infimum of integers $i$ such that the generalized local homology $\textrm{H}^{\mathfrak{a}}_i(M, N)$ is not finitely generated as an $\widehat{R}^{\mathfrak{a}}$-module, where $\widehat{R}^{\mathfrak{a}}$ denotes the $\mathfrak{a}$-adic completion of $R$. In particular, if $R$ is a complete semi-local ring, then $\textrm{H}^{\mathfrak{a}}_i(M, N)$ is a finitely generated $\widehat{R}^{\mathfrak{a}}$-module for all non-negative integers $i$ if and only if $(0:_N\mathfrak{a}+\textrm{Ann}(M))$ has finite length.
