One comment that we have heard several times at recent conferences is “I can’t see a list of all the parishes in Sweden in ArkivDigital’s web version”. In order to see the list of parishes in the web version, one must do the following:
- Go to: https://app.arkivdigital.se
- Select Archive search
- Under archive type, select Parish/Congregation
- Click on search
You will see a listing of 2,859 parishes. The parishes are listed in alphabetical order. Remember that there are three additional letters in the Swedish alphabet: Å, Ä, Ö. These letters are at the end of the alphabet.
You can further limit your search by county or province. Make sure the country selected is Sweden. Sweden is the default country. Under Swedish county, you can select a desired county and then only the parishes for that county will be selected. In the example below, the county of Kalmar was selected. Now only the 127 parishes for Kalmar are shown.
