Recently, estate inventories (bouppteckningar) for Gotland for the 1960’s and 1970’s were added to ArkivDigital. If you are searching for ancestors or others on Sweden’s largest island, you can now access estate inventories for Gotland up to and including the year 1979. You can find these recently added estate inventories in the Gotland domsaga archive (years up to and including 1970) and the Gotland tingsrätt archive (from 1971).

The above image shows an estate inventory from the year 1964. Many of the estate inventories were still very detailed at this time. This image gives a good picture of the furniture in the household. The most valuable items were the television (TV-apparaten) valued at 400 Swedish kronor and a kitchen table combined with a sewing machine (köksbord i kombination med elektrisk symaskin) valued at 150 Swedish kronor.

More records for Älvdalen parish in ArkivDigital

0294-ÄlvdalenArkivDigital at the Älvdalen archive

Many parishes in Dalarna were exempt from delivering their church records to the Regional Archive in Uppsala. As late as year 2000, a large number of the church books still remained in the original parishes. However, in recent years all the parishes have delivered their church books to the regional archive except for Älvdalen parish.

A number of years ago, ArkivDigital visited Älvdalen and photographed many of the church books (household/congregation books, migration registers, and birth, marriage and death books) from the earliest times to about 1939.  At that time we also photographed a selection of other documents, including confirmation records, communion records and parish meeting protocols.

Recently, ArkivDigital again visited Älvdalen. On this visit, church records up to the current year of privacy limits, 1945, were photographed. Privacy laws are not as restrictive for the marriage records and migration registers so these records are more current. We had added migration records up to 1971 and marriage records up to 1963. In addition, we have photographed a number of church account books.

All the records we photographed on our visit to Älvdalen are now available online. The documents are mostly found in the parish archive for Älvdalen (which also includes Evertsberg), but for the period from 1918 there is a separate archive for the Åsens church books.
