QUICK FIND SCB EXTRACTS

ArkivDigital earlier photographed the Statistiska centralbyrån (Statistics Sweden) or SCB extracts for the years 1925-1947 (1930-1947 for Stockholm city). The SCB extracts consist of transcripts of birth, marriage and death records that were sent yearly to the government department, Statistics Sweden (SCB).

Up until now, finding the right SCB extract has not been so easy. The extracts are organized by county, which means that each volume includes a large number of parishes. Thus, it has been very time-consuming to find the desired record type, parish and year. Now the problem has been solved. ArkivDigital has now introduced a new feature, Quick Find: SCB Extracts, which makes finding a desired extract a simple search.

To search for a SCB extract, do the following:

  • Select Index search.
  • Select “Quick find: SCB” in the index source list.
  • You can begin your search by using the “Simple search” routine by writing in the desired year, parish and/or the type of record (födda/vigda/döda) or fill in the desired search terms in the “Advanced search” routine.

QUICK FIND: MANTALS TAX RECORDS

When the household records and other church books are missing, the tax registers (mantalslängder) become an important source for researchers. To easily find the correct tax register for a particular parish for a certain year has often been up until now a challenge.

The index, Quick find: Mantals Tax Records, makes this much easier.

  • Select Index search.
  • Under index source, select Quick find: mantals tax records.
  • Enter the desired parish name and year and click search.
  • Click open image for the desired entry in the result list and the first page of the tax register appears.
