Do you want to learn more about ArkivDigital and Swedish genealogy? Are you new to Swedish research?
We would like to remind you that ArkivDigital published a book in English, “Explore Your Swedish Heritage” by Håkan Skogsjö. This book guides one from the first steps of genealogy research to advanced methodologies.
This book illustrates how to uncover your Swedish family history through searching archival sources on the internet—church books, estate inventories, military muster rolls, and other historical documents—how to interpret them, and how you can use them in your family research. You do genealogical research directly in the original records. And best of all, the book is written from beginning to end from an ArkivDigital perspective. All case study examples use ArkivDigital showing you the search steps for finding the records.
