English Product Catalog

product catalogArkivDigital has photographed over 61 million images of the Swedish historical records. For those who would like to see an overview of the contents of our extensive online archive, we wish to point out our product catalog. The product catalog is available both in Swedish and English. .

The product catalog is organized county by county and presents an overview of the types of documents and for what years that have been published for each county. In addition, the catalog mentions what documents are currently being photographed.

The product catalog should be viewed as a high-level overview at what is available in ArkivDigital. Even if certain documents are mentioned as being complete, individual documents might be missing such as in cases where they have been too damaged to be filmed.  In addition we have filmed many additional documents that are not listed in the catalog because it would be too extensive to include everything.

You will find the English product catalog on our English home page, www.arkivdigital.net. Click on the link “Product Catalog” on the right side of the page in order to open the catalog.

You will find the Swedish version of the product catalog as a PDF file at www.arkivdigital.se/online. Click on the link ”Produktkatalog” on the right side of the page to open the catalog.

Publication of the Swedish American church records now complete

During the last few months, we have been adding more Swedish American congregation records from Kansas to ArkivDigital’s online library. We have now completed the addition of this material which we photographed in Kansas last summer and fall. Previously, we  posted several blogs about this collection and you can read more about these records here.

Our Swedish American church collection includes about 75,000 images and over 1,000 volumes from approximately 90 congregations. Most of the material consists of records from congregations in Kansas but we do have a few in Missouri and also for one congregation in Oklahoma. Our hope is that one can discover more about Swedish immigrants’ descendants which should be a great benefit to both our Swedish and American customers.

Many of the Swedish American congregation church books are very similar to the Swedish church books. The image at the top of this page is from a “Church Register” for the Falun Lutheran Church in Falun, Kansas. The content of the record is similar to that of a Swedish household or congregation book. In this record, you see information about a Karl Fredrik Holmgren and his family. The record shows Karl’s birth date as the 9th of November 1845 in Falun.

You can use this information to find Karl’s birth record in the Swedish church books. Below is an image of his birth record from the Falu Kristine parish birth book.
