ArkivDigital’s online library continues to grow at a fast tempo. There are now about 1,200 volumes or 51 million images of Swedish historical records available. Recent new additions to ArkivDigital include: estate inventories, population/tax registers, military records and other types of records.
Estate Inventories (Bouppteckningar)
Currently, we are focusing much of our time photographing estate inventories beginning in the 1900’s. The estate inventories for Blekinge county from 1911 to 1920 are now accessible online. We are currently adding estate inventories for Halland, Göteborg och Bohus, Skaraborg and Älvsborg counties for the same period and many of these are now available. Estate inventories for Östergotland county from 1901 to 1910 are also being added.
Population/Tax Registers (Mantalslängder)
The county population/tax registers from the earliest times to the year 1820 for Uppsala county are now available. County population/tax registers for the same period for Västmanland county are being added. District taxation registers, (häradsskrivarens) or copy of tax/census records, from the earliest times to about the year 1820 are also being added to the online archive. The district taxation registers for Jönköping are now available and photographing is in progress for Kronoberg county.

In the Army Pension Archive (Arméns pensionskassas), we are currently adding merit, seniority, and service records (meritband) of commissioned and non-commissioned officers for the years 1757 to 1860.
