Web Version shortcut!

In order to start the ArkivDigital program quickly, you can create a shortcut on the desktop or taskbar depending on which browser you use. Below are the steps for creating a shortcut.

Open your web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari) and log in to the program at the following page: https://app.arkivdigital.se/.

If you were previously logged in and used the program, you must first close all open volumes, otherwise all these volumes will again open when you start the program from the shortcut. This will happen no matter which web browser you use. You can close these volumes by doing the following:

Down in the left corner you will find the box, “Close all except favorites”. Click on the white arrow (1). In order to see other alternatives, select “Close all” (2). A box will appear and you click “Close all” again. All the volumes are now closed. You can now create the shortcut.

AID – ArkivDigital’s Unique Code for Images

Every image within ArkivDigital’s online archive has a unique identification code named, AID. This identifier should not be used as a source citation for your records but only as a help tool or aid to quickly locate an image in the archive.

You can generate source citations for records while using ArkivDigital online by using the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl + C” (or “⌘ + C” on a Mac) which will generate a citation containing the parish name,  volume ID, years, image / page number, image AID number and NAD (National Archive Database) code for a church book record.

Source citation example for a household record in a church book:
 Älvsbacka AI:11 (1841-1845) Image 17 / page 11 (AID: v9037.b17.s11, NAD: SE/VA/13662)

Source citation example for a military record:
Generalmönsterrullor – Skaraborgs regemente 444 (1717-1717) Image 16 (AID: v60256.b16, NAD: SE/KrA/0023)

You can then paste the citation into a word processing program or a genealogy program by using the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl + V” (“⌘ + V” on a Mac).

If you use the shortcut “Ctrl + A” (”⌘ + A” on a Mac), only the AID number will be created.  For the above church record example: v9037.b17.s11.

AID is useful when you want to quickly go to a specific page or image within ArkivDigital online. You can write or paste in the AID number in the AID search box in the bottom right of the program. (See the picture below).  Click on Go or hit the enter key.

In order to use the AID code to find a record in ArkivDigital’s online archive, you must have an active ArkivDigital subscription and your program version must be 1.4 or later.

You can download the ArkivDigital user guide for more information about the functions within the program, ArkivDigital online.
