Updating of estate inventory index for Göta hovrätt distrikt (Göta Court of Appeals)

Last week, we updated our estate inventory index with new searchable name posts of estate inventories for members of the nobility from Göta hövratts distrikt (Göta Court of Appeals).

noble estate inventory

The index includes all of the Court of Appeals estate inventories from 1620 to 1916.

The following counties are included:

  • Blekinge (up to and including 1820)
  • Göteborg och Bohus
  • Halland
  • Jönköping
  • Kalmar
  • Kristianstad (up to and including 1820)
  • Kronoberg
  • Malmöhus (up to and including 1820)
  • Skaraborg
  • Värmland (up to and including 1813)
  • Älvsborg
  • Östergötland

The total number of new searchable index posts is 12,201. After this update, the estate inventory index includes a total of 2,239,571 posts.

For genealogy researchers, the estate inventories are an important resource. Here you find information about the deceased’s heirs. There is a list of all the deceased’s assets and debts which helps you understand better your ancestor’s life.

Our index makes it much easier to find the correct estate inventory, something which in ordinary cases can be quite time consuming since the estate inventories are not organized in an exact order. We launched our estate inventory in 2017 and since then we have added more material on several occasions.

You can search in the estate inventory index by name, the year in which the estate inventory was performed, along with county and parish where the person died. When you search by year, it is important to note that the estate inventory may not have been created in the same year as the person died. It is recommended to include a year range from the year of death and maybe a couple of years in the future.

The estate inventory index includes searchable name entries for estate inventories for the following counties: Gotland, Gävleborg, Göteborg och Bohus, Jämtland, Jönköping, Kalmar, Kronoberg, Norrbotten, Skaraborg, Stockholm, Södermanland, Uppsala, Värmland, Västerbotten, Västernorrland, Västmanland, Älvsborg and Östergötland. We will continue to add entries to the estate inventory index. Watch our blogs, newsletters and other social media for updates.Ö

More than 19 million new posts in the Population of Sweden Index

We have made a major update of the Population of Sweden index which is ArkivDigital’s largest name index and also the largest name index in Sweden. This update includes the years 1820-1839 and now the index includes posts for the years 1820-1947. This includes 127 years where you can search for your ancestors and family with a simple search.

This update consisted of 19,396,274 new searchable name entries. After this update, there are now about 152.5 million searchable name posts in the Population of Sweden 1820-1947. A fantastic addition for you who are researchers!

The following information is searchable in the Population of Sweden 1820-1947:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Birth date
  • Birth place (parish/county/country)
  • Residence: parish along with the place (village, farm, quarter, etc.)
  • Relation (son, daughter, wife, etc.)

1820 to 1947 index

In earlier times, often only the person’s year of birth is given and the minister omitted the month and day in the household book. If you have difficulty in finding the correct person in the older records, you may want to search only by birth year versus the complete birth date. Sometimes the minister wrote the person’s age instead of the year of birth, which may have been misinterpreted in the indexing. We are working to identify and correct the cases where it occurs. In cases where you can’t find the person, you may want to omit the date or enter a range of years in the search.

The BiS (Population in Sweden) 1820-1947 includes all persons in the household/congregation books for all of Sweden for the years 1820-1947. The household book (which from around 1895 was called the congregation book) was the most important population register, listing all the residents of a parish. The household books usually cover a period of time ranging from a few years to a couple of decades.

From the index record, there is a link directly to the source or the household/congregation record. When you click on the link, you end up on the page where your ancestor or relative is listed and you can quickly and easily check the information in the index against the information in the original source. In the original source, you can also find additional information, such as moving in and out information, emigration and any special notations that the minister may have noted in the record.

Note that the register itself should never be seen as an original source, but it is a tool that makes it easier for you to find the original source. With so many millions of records, it is also inevitable that some inaccuracies creep in. It is always a balance when an index is considered ready for publication. If we were to wait for each index to be 100% correctly indexed, the index would never be ready for. publication. We prefer to make the register available to our users and then continue the work of correcting any errors.

If you find an error in the index, you can help by correcting the error. Click here to find out how to correct an index record.

In order to open the BiS (Population of Sweden) 1820-1947, you log in at app.arkivdigital.se, select Index search and select BIS, Population of Sweden 1820-1947 in the list under index source.
