Population of Sweden 1985

Recently, ArkivDigital, released a name searchable register, Population of Sweden 1975, with information of all persons who lived in Sweden that year. Now, we continue forward in time and launch a new register, the Population of Sweden 1985.

In the new register, Population of Sweden 1985, you will find personal information about all persons who lived in Sweden in 1985. The information includes full name, address, birth date and birth parish, marriage date or date of last change in marital status as well as current tax registration place and previous tax registration place. Also, the index record shows all who lived in the same household.

There are many ways to search for a person in the new register: first and last name, birth date and birth parish, residence and various combinations of this information, for example, all Leif’s who were born on the 13th of September 1928. You can also search by using combination of names within the same household such as all persons named Bertil Lundberg whose spouse was named Edit.

The source for the Population of Sweden 1985 is an extract from the 1986 tax register and reflects conditions on the 1st of November 1985.For Uppsala county, the tax register for 1986 is missing. Instead the source for Uppsala county, is the 1987 tax registers reflecting conditions on the 1st of November 1986.

In order to access the Population of Sweden 1985, one must have an All-in-one subscription and the register is only available in the web version of our software. You can find the web version by going to https://app.arkivdigital.se.

ArkivDigital is currently working on creating additional name searchable registers. Soon, the Population of Sweden 1940 will be available.

A searchable name register for parishes in Kronoberg county is coming!

Soon, there will be a searchable name register of births, marriages and deaths for all of Kronoberg county in ArkivDigital. This is a result of an agreement that was recently made with the Kronoberg Genealogical Society.

The new register consists of births, marriages and deaths in Kronoberg county from the oldest time (late 1600’s) to the 1900’s (births usually end around 1920, marriages and deaths around 1944). In some cases, even moving in and moving out records have been indexed.

In addition, this includes a number of parishes from neighboring counties, Jönköping, Blekinge, Kalmar, and Kristianstad counties. However, these are only partially indexed except for the following which are more complete: Gällaryd, Hjälmseryd, Rydaholm, Backaryd, Bräkne-Hoby, Eringsboda.

The new register consists of around 1.7 million posts (860,000 births, 245,000 marriages and 577,000 deaths).

The register was created by the Kronoberg’s Genealogical Society and can be published thanks to an agreement between the association and ArkivDigital. However, before the index register becomes available, ArkivDigital will link all the index records to the images within the church books. This means that the researcher can then proceed quickly from the index record to the original church book record by a simple mouse click. This work is expected to take a few months. We hope to have the index complete for Genealogy Days which will be held on September 1-2, 2018 in Växjö, the central city in Kronoberg County.

Previously, ArkivDigital has created a similar register for parishes in southern and eastern Södermanland, developed by Katrineholm-Flen-Vingåkers Genealogy Society and Nyköpings-Oxelösund Genealogy Society. Also in this register, ArkivDigital has created the possibility to link directly to the original church book from the index record.

ArkivDigital has ambitions to publish more personal registers, both of which the company has developed on its own and those that genealogy societies around Sweden have created over the years.

Currently ArkivDigital is working on creating a name register to the 1940 extracts from the congregation books, which will be the Population of Sweden 1940, similar to the already existing Populations of Sweden 1950 and 1960 search indexes.
