In September, we wrote a blog announcing that we had acquired a church book register that was created by the Värmland Genealogy Society. We have now completed the task of linking the register with the church books and we are now publicizing the Värmland index in ArkivDigital.
Now it becomes much easier to find persons who were born, married or died in Värmland. Instead of browsing through the books page by page, you only need to do a quick search. When you find the right person, you can simply click to see the original source in order to verify the information.

This update includes a total of 1,280,966 index posts from Värmland, divided as follows:
- Births: 604,559 posts
- Marriages: 230,591 posts
- Deaths: 445,816 posts
The information about the births, marriages and deaths in Värmland have been added to our existing indexes: Births, parts of Sweden, Marriages, parts of Sweden and Death, parts of Sweden. As earlier mentioned, the index information was provided by the Värmland Genealogy Society.
The index for births in Värmland for the years 1800-1840 was added earlier to ArkivDigital; this index was created in-house.
The index for births, marriages and deaths in Värmland is not 100% complete and which years that have been indexed vary between the various parishes. For some parishes, you will not find indexes for all three record types and for a few they are completely missing. In the following three links, you can see exactly what is included in the update (scroll down until you find Värmland in the list).
