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.
