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.

northern gotland archive

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.
