Celebrate the “Genealogy Research Day with us”


“Genealogy Research Day” (Sweden) will be celebrated around the country again on Saturday, March 19th 2011. In many places the local genealogical societies, archives and libraries will be hosting this event. Genealogy Research Day is a chance for many, both new and experienced genealogy researchers to meet and exchange experiences.

How do I get access to ArkivDigital for free?


To get access to ArkivDigital’s service ADOnLine2 for free, you’ll have to go through a few steps. It’s not difficult and you should be able to make it if you follow the steps below carefully:
  1. Register with us
    • If you are already registered, go to the next paragraph.
    • If you are not registered as a member before, you will have to do the following: Go to: http://www.arkivdigital.net/users/register and fill in the information requested. Be extra careful to write the correct email address and password you choose. The password must be at least 6 characters long.
  2. Install the program ADOnLine2, http://www.arkivdigital.net/products/adonline/installation. If you do not have the latest version, we advise you to install it now. The latest version is called 1.4.1 (rev 511). You can check which version you have if you have the application running, press the “Hjälp” (Help) menu and then click “Om” (About).
  3. During installation, you will be asked some questions. You must respond to them "positively" and when the installation is complete, you will have a new icon on your desktop called ADOnLine2.
  4. Double-click the icon to start the program.
  5. Now the login box appears. Please enter your login information (email and password). Be sure to enter exactly the same way as you did when you registered. It is a difference between capital and lowercase letters. If you receive an error regarding “e-post/lösenord” (email address/password) there is something wrong. Click to clear the error messages and then on the File menu and login. Now, the login box appears again. Erase all information and fill in the information again.
  6. Once you have logged in you can start your research.
  7. To the left is a list of records archive holders. Search for "your" parish in the list or type it directly into the search field above. Click on the name to choose.
  8. To the right a list of volumes from your chosen parish appears. Search for the right volume in the list and double click the left mouse button to open the volume.
  9. When the volume is opened, you can browse by clicking the -5, -1, +1 and +5 buttons or make a direct choice in the drop-down list (between the -1 and +1 buttons).
  10. On the installation page you will also find a manual for the program.

Frequently asked questions and problems

  • If you want to try to solve the problem on your own you can try to install an older version of the program. At the bottom of the Setup page we provide links to older versions. Sometimes they work better.
