Updating of estate inventory index for Göta hovrätt distrikt (Göta Court of Appeals)

Last week, we updated our estate inventory index with new searchable name posts of estate inventories for members of the nobility from Göta hövratts distrikt (Göta Court of Appeals).

From the earlies times and up to and including 1916, members of the nobility submitted their estate inventories to the court of appeals versus their district or city court. Beginning in 1917, the estate inventories for the nobility can be found in the district or city courts.

noble estate inventory

The index includes all of the Court of Appeals estate inventories from 1620 to 1916.

The following counties are included:

  • Blekinge (up to and including 1820)
  • Göteborg och Bohus
  • Halland
  • Jönköping
  • Kalmar
  • Kristianstad (up to and including 1820)
  • Kronoberg
  • Malmöhus (up to and including 1820)
  • Skaraborg
  • Värmland (up to and including 1813)
  • Älvsborg
  • Östergötland

The total number of new searchable index posts is 12,201. After this update, the estate inventory index includes a total of 2,239,571 posts.

For genealogy researchers, the estate inventories are an important resource. Here you find information about the deceased’s heirs. There is a list of all the deceased’s assets and debts which helps you understand better your ancestor’s life.

Our index makes it much easier to find the correct estate inventory, something which in ordinary cases can be quite time consuming since the estate inventories are not organized in an exact order. We launched our estate inventory in 2017 and since then we have added more material on several occasions.

You can search in the estate inventory index by name, the year in which the estate inventory was performed, along with county and parish where the person died. When you search by year, it is important to note that the estate inventory may not have been created in the same year as the person died. It is recommended to include a year range from the year of death and maybe a couple of years in the future.

The estate inventory index includes searchable name entries for estate inventories for the following counties: Gotland, Gävleborg, Göteborg och Bohus, Jämtland, Jönköping, Kalmar, Kronoberg, Norrbotten, Skaraborg, Stockholm, Södermanland, Uppsala, Värmland, Västerbotten, Västernorrland, Västmanland, Älvsborg and Östergötland. We will continue to add entries to the estate inventory index. Watch our blogs, newsletters and other social media for updates.Ö
