QUICK FIND SCB EXTRACTS

ArkivDigital earlier photographed the Statistiska centralbyrån (Statistics Sweden) or SCB extracts for the years 1925-1947 (1930-1947 for Stockholm city). The SCB extracts consist of transcripts of birth, marriage and death records that were sent yearly to the government department, Statistics Sweden (SCB).

Up until now, finding the right SCB extract has not been so easy. The extracts are organized by county, which means that each volume includes a large number of parishes. Thus, it has been very time-consuming to find the desired record type, parish and year. Now the problem has been solved. ArkivDigital has now introduced a new feature, Quick Find: SCB Extracts, which makes finding a desired extract a simple search.

To search for a SCB extract, do the following:

  • Select Index search.
  • Select “Quick find: SCB” in the index source list.
  • You can begin your search by using the “Simple search” routine by writing in the desired year, parish and/or the type of record (födda/vigda/döda) or fill in the desired search terms in the “Advanced search” routine.

QUICK FIND: MANTALS TAX RECORDS

When the household records and other church books are missing, the tax registers (mantalslängder) become an important source for researchers. To easily find the correct tax register for a particular parish for a certain year has often been up until now a challenge.

The index, Quick find: Mantals Tax Records, makes this much easier.

  • Select Index search.
  • Under index source, select Quick find: mantals tax records.
  • Enter the desired parish name and year and click search.
  • Click open image for the desired entry in the result list and the first page of the tax register appears.

Table of Contents for SCB records

ArkivDigital has earlier photographed the Statistiska centralbyrån (Statistics Sweden) or SCB extracts for the years 1925-1947 (1930-1947 for Stockholm city). The SCB extracts consist of transcripts of birth, marriage and death records that were sent yearly to the government department, Statistics Sweden (SCB).

The original birth, marriage and death books generally consist of several years in one volume. In some of the smaller parishes, often several decades are included in the same volume. Because of Swedish privacy legislation, this can be a problem because the entire book must not have any contents that are protected by the privacy law in order to be photographed. For example, if a death book includes the years 1930-1950, we cannot photograph the volume since the later years are protected by the 70-year privacy law. This is where the SCB records come in the picture. Since these were created annually, we can photograph all parishes up to 1947.

Up until now, finding the right SCB extract has not been so easy. The extracts are organized by county, which means that each volume includes a large number of parishes. Thus, it has been very time-consuming to find the desired record type, parish and year. Now the problem has been solved. ArkivDigital has now introduced a new feature, Table of content, SCB, which makes finding a desired extract a simple search.

To search for a SCB extract, do the following:

  • Select Index search.
  • Select “Table of content SCB” in the index source list.
  • You can begin your search by using the “Simple search” routine by writing in the desired year, parish and/or the type of record (födda/vigda/döda) or fill in the desired search terms in the “Advanced search” routine.

Note – At the moment, you will need to write in the Swedish word for the type of record. Below are the Swedish words for birth, marriage and death.

  • Birth – födda
  • Marriage – vigda
  • Death – döda

It is important to remember that the SCB extracts are transcriptions and that they should be considered as secondary sources. There could be errors in the transcriptions and much of the time they include less information than what is in the original church book. Where the original church books are available, these should be the ones that are used.

In order to access the Table of Content, SCB, you must have an All-in-one subscription. The Table of Content, SCB, is only available in our Web version which you find here: https://app.arkivdigital.se/.
