NEW! Searchable name indexes from Släktdata

At the end of last year, we announced our partnership with the genealogy society, Föreningen Släktdata. The partnership allows ArkivDigital to receive the indexes from Släktdata and these have now been linked to our church books and are searchable in our indexes. This cooperation consists of 1,517,145 posts among which 1,333,167 are now available and searchable in ArkivDigital. The other 183,978 posts have been published in earlier updates of our birth index.

ArkivDigital’s index makes it easier for you to find information about when and where your ancestors were born, married and died instead of browsing through the church books page by page; you can now do a quick search in our index. When you find the person you are seeking, you can simply click further to the original source and double check the information.

Soon even more searchable name indexes in ArkivDigital!

slaktdata

ArkivDigital has entered into a partnership with the genealogy society, Föreningen Släktdata.

The partnership will allow ArkivDigital to have access to approximately 1.6 million index entries which will be searchable in ArkivDigital. These index entries include births, marriages, and deaths primarily from the western parts of Sweden. The register from Föreningen Släktdata has been created by genealogists from various parts of Sweden and is available on the Föreningen Släktdata website.

The new index entries will make it easier for ArkivDigital’s customers to find even more ancestors and relatives with the help of a simple search. You will be able to search by name, year, place and other criteria. Once you find the person you are looking for, you can easily click a link to access the original record to verify the information. Work on linking the index entries with the church books will begin next year and these new indexes will be available to ArkivDigital customers sometime in the coming year.

ArkivDigital’s goal is to publish more name indexes, both those that the company has created on its own and those that genealogy associations around Sweden have created over the years.
