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.

Find the right volume quickly

Now comes another great tool that makes it easier to find a church record or other document in ArkivDigital. You can now filter and quickly display, for example, all birth records or all church records containing the year 1835. You can find the filter function above the volume list. Below you see examples of how you can use the filter function.

1

Click on the row Filter and you get 4 different options that you can combine.

2

Here we show Hamneda church archives and in the field Search in volume information you can search the information that is recorded for a volume. It can be for example, duplicate or as we see below, the name of a block.

On the second row you can search in Year from and Year to. This means that you can search for all documents that, for example, contain 1835. Then you enter 1835 in both fields.

3

On the third row you can choose to show only specific types of source. Below you will only see the Birth and Christening records. You can select several different types of source at the same time.

4

You can of course also combine and, for example, show Birth and Christening records for 1835. Here are two volumes that come up. An original book and a rough copy, both containing 1835.

5

In the cities there are usually several different household records for the same time period and it is then in the volume information which blocks are included in the respective volume. Below we have searched for Hamburg to find the block “Stadt Hamburg”, located in Malmö St. Petri’s parish. We quickly see that it is 14 volumes. Keep in mind that the blocks can be found in more volumes where the block name is not printed in the volume information.

6

You can combine the way you want. We conclude with an example where we look at the archive Göta Hovrätt – Advokatfiskalen Kronobergs län, which is where you find the so-called renovated court records. We show Sunnerbo in the volume information and the volumes covering the years 1695-1712. Instead of looking through 259 volumes, you can quickly see which 15 volumes it is.

7

Closes the filter function by pressing x at the top right of the filter function.

Another new feature is that you can sort the columns Archives Volume, Type of source, From and To.

8

This is done by clicking on the column heading, a click is sorted from the bottom up and another click from the top down.

Below we have sorted From and shows all the volumes from the oldest start year and forward in time.

9

Of course you can combine both filter function and sorting. As a final example, we have chosen to display Birth and Chrisening records and Death and Burial records, and sorted by showing From (starting year for the volume) from the oldest at the top.

10

If you want to remove the sorting, click Reset sorting and to close the filter function, click x at the top right of the filter box.
