Population of Sweden 1880-1920
The Population of Sweden 1880-1920 is a digital searchable name register of all of the Swedish household records and congregation books from around 1880 to 1920. In other words: A fantastic tool for solving those genealogical mysteries in your family tree!
Whatever happened to your great-grandfather’s little brother? His name appeared in an 1860’s household record, but then he vanished. Surely, he moved somewhere. But where?
This tool is the first one to employ as you pursue an answer. You can search for a person by name, birth date, or other characteristics and you will see a result list of possible candidates. Click on a good possibility and you will pull up a transcription of that person’s complete information along with a link to the original record.
You may have the answer before you can say, “There’s Great Uncle Sven!”
The register is created in partnership with MyHeritage.
Population of Sweden 1960
The 1960 Swedish Census index is a wonderful source for those seeking information about people living in Sweden during the middle of the last century. This census is drawn from the country’s tax register published in 1961 using data collected late in the previous year and includes everyone who then lived in Sweden.
The register is searchable by name and includes full name, birth date and birth parish, marital status, and information about their place of residence. Individuals are grouped by households, though the relationships among those living together are not stated. Nonetheless, it is often possible to infer additional information. If a man and woman in the same household have the same marriage date, for example, they most likely are married to each other.
Additional information in the database includes the maiden name of married women and the place of registration in the previous tax register. Usually, there is a link to the first image of the parish birth book that will contain the person’s birth record.
