Tips for finding an estate inventory register in an estate inventory volume

We have previously written an English blog (see previous blog entry) about the estate inventories (bouppteckningar) and how one can search these records in ArkivDigital. We mentioned that many estate inventories have been indexed by name and these indexes are in volumes named, estate inventory registers (bouppteckningsregister).

However, not all estate inventories have been indexed. In those cases, one needs to browse page by page in the estate inventory volume.  But you still may be lucky.

Some estate inventory volumes contain a name index in the front of the book.  This is the case with the estate inventory volume FII:18 found in the Orust and Tjörns häradsrätt archive. In this volume, you will find a number of name registers and there is a register for each court (ting) session that the volume covers.

In volume FII:19 for the same district court (häradsrätt), there is one name register for all the court sessions that the volume covers. The register is on page 1 with the following heading:

”Register öfver bouppteckningar, som inregistrerats vid Orusts och Tjörns häradsrätt under åren 1854-1856 efter följande aflidna personer”.

Register of estate inventories, which were registered at Orust and Tjörn district court during the years 1854-1856 for the following deceased persons.

The register notes the name of the person that the estate inventory refers to along with a reference number for the actual estate inventory.

In both of these examples, we have added information about these registers in the “Archive Info” box that you will find above the list showing the archive volumes.

We wish to thank Lisbeth Zachs for giving us this tip about the registers in the estate inventory volumes for Orust and Tjörn district court (häradsrätt).
