61 Million Register Posts

A few weeks ago ArkivDigital reached a major milestone: 60 million newly photographed images in our online digital archive, a result of nearly 10 years of photographing. A relatively new feature for ArkivDigital is searchable name registers. Today, the number of register posts already exceeds the number of photographed images. Today, we have nearly 61 million searchable register posts divided among the following three registers:

  • Population of Sweden 1880-1920, 46.5 million posts (Sweden’s largest searchable name register!)
  • Population of Sweden 1950, 7 million posts
  • Population of Sweden 1960, 7.5 million posts

The Population of Sweden 1950 is available for all subscribers. The Population of Swedish 1880-1920 and the Population of Sweden 1960 are available to subscribers who have an All-in-one subscription. You can find more information about these registers in the following previous blog entries:

These three registers are only a beginning; more will be added in the future.

60 Million Images

arkivdigital

We are excited to announce that ArkivDigital has reached another milestone; 60 million newly photographed color images of old books and other documents are now available in our online digital archive. Since most images include two pages, this means that we now have nearly 120 million photographed pages available for historical research.

While we are extremely pleased and proud that we have reached another milestone, we are not slowing down. Each month we photograph approximately 600, 000 new images and we are focused on our next milestone, 70 million images. We are hoping to reach this goal in about eighteen months.

ArkivDigital’s image milestones:

  • 10 million images, August 2008
  • 20 million images, March 2010
  • 30 million images, September 2011
  • 40 million images, March 2013
  • 50 million images, September 2014

58 million images!

58 million images

ArkivDigital’s online archive now has over 58 million images! This is about 116 million pages of Swedish historical pages for your research!

About a year and half ago on September 29, 2014, we proudly announced that we had reached a milestone of 50 million images. Since then we have continued at the same rapid pace adding new records: about 600,000 new images each month! As our online database grows, opportunities to learn more about your Swedish ancestors increase. You can learn more about their daily lives, the places where they lived and much more!

Now our next milestone is nearing: 60 million images. Soon we will be there!
