We continually receive questions from our English-speaking customers on where to find examples for reading the church book records. Today, we would like to point out church record examples on our English website and a few of the blogs that also give examples. On our English website, you will find a section titled, Swedish Genealogy. In this section, you will find record examples including both transcriptions and translations for birth, marriage, death, household and moving records. Below are links to these tutorials.
