Another look at Regna’s Historical Society Archive

About three years ago, we wrote a blog (see earlier blog in English, see earlier blog in Swedish) stating that selected sections of the Regna local historical society’s archive (Regna hembygdsförenings arkiv) had been added to the ArkivDigital’s online archive.

Since there are so many types of records within ArkivDigital, it is often good to review the many types of archives and record types within ArkivDigital.

Among one of the most interesting archives is the Regna Hembygdsförening:Fotoalbum. The archive includes 17 volumes of wonderful photographs of people living in Regna, taken from the middle of the 1800’s and forward. Many of the persons in the photos are identified with information about their place of residence as well as birth and death year.

If you have an ancestor from the parish of Regna in Östergötland county, you may want to look at these photographs. Below is a photo of Nämndeman (Juryman) Viktor Gustafsson who emigrated from Regna to North America in 1903.
