For you who do family research, the estate inventories are an important source. Here you can find information about family as information about the deceased’s heirs are noted in the estate inventory. You will find information about the deceased’s assets and debts and often there is detailed list of the deceased’s possessions.

Our index makes it easier to find the correct estate inventory, since usually it can be time consuming since the estate inventories are not organized in exact date order.  In 2017, we launched our estate inventory index and since then we have added material several times.

In the estate inventory index, you can search by name, year when the estate inventory was created along with the county and parish where the deceased person lived. When you search by year, one should remember that the estate inventory was not always created the same year of the person’s death.  Therefore, search with a time interval beginning with the death years and a couple of years out.

The estate inventory index now includes searchable name information for estate inventories from the following counties: Gotland, Gävleborg, Göteborg och Bohus, Jämtland, Jönköping, Kalmar, Kronoberg, Norrbotten, Skaraborg, Stockholm, Södermanland, Uppsala, Värmland, Västerbotten, Västernorrland, Västmanland, Älvsborg and Östergötland. We will continue to add more information so watch for additional information in our blog and Facebook.

More estate inventory indexes!

An important source for the Swedish genealogist is the estate inventory. Here you can prove genealogical relationships and find information about the deceased’s heirs. You will also see the assets and debts of the deceased which will help you gain a better understanding of your ancestor or relative’s life.

Our estate inventories index makes it much simpler for you to find the correct estate inventory, something that can be time-consuming since the estate inventories are not organized in any exact order. About three years ago, we launched our searchable estate inventory index and we have added additional material several times.

Now it is time for a new update. This time we have added new searchable posts for estate inventories from Gävleborg, Jämtland, Norrbotten, Uppsala, Västerbotten and Västernorrland counties. For some of these counties, there were already searchable posts available but we have added more searchable material.
