Share your family tree!

There is a new function in the family tree at ArkivDigital. You can now invite up to 25 persons to view your tree. This makes it easy to show your research to your relatives and friends.

To do this:
Open your family tree in ArkivDigital and click on the button, “Settings” at the bottom right corner.

family tree 1

In the dialogue routine you now see, click on “Handle tree invites”.

family tree 2

Then click on “Invite to family tree”.

family tree 3

Write in the email address for the person that you wish to invite to view the tree and click OK.

family tree 4

Repeat the above steps to invite more people. The people you invite will receive an email with instructions on how to view the tree.

Looking at the family tree is completely free for the people you invite; they only need to register with their name and email address at ArkivDigital to access the tree.

The invited people can only look at your family tree, they cannot make any changes to it.

By clicking on “Handle tree invites” (see the second image) you can also see the status of the people you have invited and you can also remove the invitation if you no longer want a person to have access to your family tree.

NEW! Land registration index for the Northern Gotland district archive

Thanks to our rewarding partnerships with associations and private individuals, we can continuously publish new indexes and also update existing ones. We do this to help  genealogists as the indexes make it easier to find the correct records in the church books and other documents.

The latest index that we have added in ArkivDigital is the land registration index for Northern Gotland’s district archive. We have access to this index thanks to Kjell Swebilius, who has improved an older register established by the Regional Archives in Visby.

The land registration index covers the years 1800-1870 and is searchable by farm name, parish and year. The index includes about 35,000 index entries.

ArkivDigital has also photographed the land registration protocol (lagfartsprotokoll) which is the basis for the index. This means that there is direct link to the original document from the index record so that one can easily find more information.
