Estate Inventory Status Update – February 2019

Next to the church books, the estate inventory records are probably the most important source material for many genealogists. These rich records provide genealogical information as well as detailing the assets and debts of the deceased which helps one gain a deeper understanding of one’s ancestor’s life.

We have photographed all the estate inventory records from earliest times up to 1940 for all of Sweden.  Our goal is to photograph all up until 1960. For some counties, the photographing is complete while work remains for other counties. Below is the photographing status for each county. There may be cases in all counties where individual volumes may be missing for example where the volume could not be photographed because of its extremely poor physical condition.
