During March, many new exciting records were added to ArkivDigital’s online library. Below is a summary of the new additions.
We continue to focus on photographing the estate inventories (bouppteckningarna) for the period from 1901 to 1940. Below is a summary of what was completed during March:
- Jönköping, Kalmar, Kopparberg, Södermanland, Uppsala, Västmanland, Örebro and Östergötland counties: All estate inventories for the period 1901-1910 are now available and photographing is in progress for the period 1911-1920.
- Gävleborg, Norrbotten, Värmland, Västerbotten and Västernorrland counties: Photographing is complete for the period 1901-1920 and photographing is in progress for the years, 1921-1930.
- Malmöhus och Kristianstad counties: Photographing is complete for the years 1901-1930.
- Blekinge och Halland counties: Photographing is in progress for the years 1931-1940.
For those interested in Sweden during World War II, we want to mention that we are currently photographing Beredskapsverket, Avdelning 1 (Defense Readiness Agency, Section 1). This is an official military history collection describing the military defense readiness program for the years 1939-1945. Work began on these volumes in 1941 but was not completed until after the war. In a future blog, we will present more detailed information about these records.
During March, we have added documents from the Swedish parishes in Copenhagen, Oslo, Berlin and Paris. In a future blog we will post more information about these records.
In addition, the church accounts for Jämtland county from earliest times to the year 1800 along with The Public Orphanage of Stockholm’s (Allmänna barnhusets) orphanage rolls from earliest times to the year 1880 were added to the online archive in March.
