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.

About Föreningen Släktdata
Föreningen Släktdata has existed since 1989 and is a society whose primary goal is to make as many church books as possible freely accessible for genealogists. The society’s searchable database which is free for all can be found at the following web address: www.slaktdata.org.

Soon it will be easier to research in Värmland!

Wonderful news for all with Värmland roots! Soon, it will be easier to search for your Värmland ancestors. This is thanks to the Värmland Genealogical Society which has allowed ArkivDigital to acquire the church book register which the society has created. The register which is named the Värmland’s Church Book Register (Värmlands Kryrkboksregister) was created over a period of years by members of the society as well as work from some labor market projects. The register was previously published on a DVD/USB. This register will be available in ArkivDigital.

“We see ArkivDigital as a natural partner,” says Lars-Göran Jansson, chairman of the Värmland Genealogical Society.

The new register will include more than 1.2 million index entries for births, marriages and deaths for the majority of Värmland parishes. The fact that this information will become searchable in ArkivDigital will make it much easier for all researchers who have Värmland ancestors when one no longer has to browse page by page in the church books but simply look for the person with a simple search.

ArkivDigital customers will be able to search by name, year, location plus much more. When one has found the information, one can easily click on the original source record to check the information. ArkivDigital is beginning to link the register entries to the church book records and, in a few months, the Värmland register will become available to ArkivDigital customers.

ArkivDigital’s goal is to publish more indexes including those produced by the company and those that have been created by organizations around Sweden over the years.

“We welcome genealogical societies to contact us, if they have registers of church books or other old documents,” says Mikael Karlsson, managing director of ArkivDigital.
