ArkivDigital for free March 16-17, 2013
During this weekend (Saturday March 16th until Sunday March 17th 2013) we offer everyone free access to our image database. Take this opportunity to familiarize yourself with ArkivDigital online and what we have to offer.
Books Swedish Church
The Swedish church books are usually the first Swedish records that one uses when tracing one’s Swedish roots. These records are a "gold mine" because they are so complete and contain such detailed information. In many cases, one can trace a person’s life in the church books from birth to death or birth to emigration.
ArkivDigital online and Släktdata
Släktdata is a free online site where you will find transcription registers for many Swedish church birth, marriage and death records. While you will find transcriptions for many parishes throughout
, many of
the records are for parishes in the provinces of Bohuslän, Dalsland and
Västergötland. These transcriptions are very helpful to decipher the old
handwriting especially in the older records and in cases where the priest’s
handwriting is difficult to read. Sweden
