New index simplifies Stockholm genealogy research!

It is now easier to research in Stockholm city! The Stockholm Rotemansarkivet register is now accessible in ArkivDigital. The Rotemansarkivet register consists of approximately 6.3 million posts about individuals who lived in Stockholm city during the years 1878 – 1926.

In the past, it has been a challenge to research genealogy in Stockholm city because there are no household or congregation books from 1878 onwards. This has made it difficult to find and follow one’s ancestors and relatives. Now that the Rotemansarkivet register is now available to search within ArkivDigital, you can supplement your genealogy with the information you previously could not locate.

The information from the Rotemansarkivet is available in the index, Population in Sweden 1860 – 1947.  After this update, the index has nearly 112 million index records.

You can find the following information in the register:

  • First and last name
  • Birthdate and birth place
  • Title/occupation along with marital status
  • Moving in and out information (both year and place)
  • Residence (information about rote, parish, address and real estate or property)
  • Link to the actual page in the population booklet (mantalsboken/rotehäftet)

You search for your relatives and ancestors by entering, for example, name, year of birth and place. When you have found the person you are looking for, you can click on the link to the source to go directly to the original record.

The Roteman Institution (rotemansinstitutionen) was a municipal organization established in 1878 and was discontinued in 1926. One of its responsibilities was population registration. The Roteman Institution was established because Stockholm’s parish priests were unable to manage the public records because of the high growth of the population and also because the inhabitants moved so often. The solution was to divide the city into a number of districts (rotar). In each district, there was a city employee (roteman) rote who was responsible for recording the population statistics in a special booklet called a mantalshäfte. When the district or rote system was introduced each district (rote) corresponded to a parish but since the city grew so quickly, additional districts were created. In 1878 there were 16 districts or rotar and when the system ended in 1926 there were 36 districts or rotar.

To access the Rotemansarkivet register:

  • Log in to app.arkivdigital.se
  • Select – Index search
  • Select the Population of Sweden 1860 – 1947 under index source.

The Stockholm Rotemansarkivet register was created by the Stockholm city archives.

Population of Stockholm 1945

Genealogy research in Stockholm City can be challenging even as late as the mid-1940’s. The absence of household/congregation books in the major Stockholm city parishes makes these church archives less useful than church archives for the rest of the country. Also, this means that persons living in Stockholm City after 1878 are not included in the Population of Sweden 1860-1947 index.

With our new index, the Population of Stockholm 1945, we hope that this will be of great help for those who research in Stockholm City in the mid-1940’s. This index covers the entire population of Stockholm City on December 31, 1945, approximately 670,000 persons.

The sources for this index are forms titled “Utdrag ur Stockholms stads civila folkregister den 31 december 1945 och mantalsluppgift för år 1946” or Extract from the Stockholm City population register on December 31, 1945 and tax records for the year 1946. These forms were sent to the Central Bureau of Statistics and were the basis for the 1945 Census.

The index record shows the following information:

  • First and last name
  • Birth date and birth place (parish/county/country)
  • Marital status
  • Resident parish and address (usually the quarter where the individual is registered)

In addition, other members of the household are displayed.

By clicking on the link to the source, the original source record is shown. You will find more information in the original source than what is included in the index record. Sometimes, you will see the individual’s occupation and even the individual’s employer.
