Population of Sweden 1880-1920

The Population of Sweden 1880-1920 is a digital searchable name register of all of the Swedish household records and congregation books from around 1880 to 1920. In other words:  A fantastic tool for solving those genealogical mysteries in your family tree!

Whatever happened to your great-grandfather’s little brother?  His name appeared in an 1860’s household record, but then he vanished. Surely, he moved somewhere. But where?

This tool is the first one to employ as you pursue an answer.   You can search for a person by name, birth date, or other characteristics and you will see a result list of possible candidates. Click on a good possibility and you will pull up a transcription of that person’s complete information along with a link to the original record.

You may have the answer before you can say, “There’s Great Uncle Sven!”

The register is created in partnership with MyHeritage.

 Population of Sweden 1960

The 1960 Swedish Census index is a wonderful source for those seeking information about people living in Sweden during the middle of the last century.  This census is drawn from the country’s tax register published in 1961 using data collected late in the previous year and includes everyone who then lived in Sweden.

The register is searchable by name and includes full name, birth date and birth parish, marital status, and information about their place of residence. Individuals are grouped by households, though the relationships among those living together are not stated. Nonetheless, it is often possible to infer additional information.  If a man and woman in the same household have the same marriage date, for example, they most likely are married to each other.

Additional information in the database includes the maiden name of married women and the place of registration in the previous tax register. Usually, there is a link to the first image of the parish birth book that will contain the person’s birth record.

New times ahead for ArkivDigital – Report from Annual Shareholder’s Meeting

ArkivDigital annual shareholders meeting“Headed toward new times” is the title of Archives Digital’s annual report for 2014.  And ArkivDigital’s Chief Executive Officer, Mikael Karlsson, focused on the new as he presented the forthcoming new product features at the Annual Shareholder’s meeting on May 19th in Lyrestad, Sweden.

A new software program replacing the current “ArkivDigital online” will be launched at Genealogy Days (Släktforskardagarna) in August.   The new program is built using modern technology with a user interface created in the same manner as a web page and displayed with a specially built web browser. A new function will be automatic software upgrades allowing improved versions to be released often without causing user inconveniences.

Another new feature that will be introduced is the capability to manage registers. At Genealogy Days, a searchable name register for Sweden’s entire population for 1950 will be released. Later, a name searchable register for 1960 will be released. The sources for these registers are the tax/population registers (mantal) for 1951 and 1961.  Within a year, there will be a searchable name register for all the household/congregation books for the years 1880-1920 (about).

According to Mikael Karlsson, “These new features will be powerful help tools for all researchers”.

The new program software is a rebuilding of the product. Many new functions are planned for the future such as: better help texts, powerful search possibilities and flexible payment methods, to take a few examples.

Concerning economic development during 2014, there were no unwelcome surprises. Net sales increased by 16 percent to nearly 20 million kronor. The number of subscribers increased 13 percent to nearly 25,000 and the image database grew so that it now includes more than 100 million pages of historical source material. The year’s results were 141,770 kroner (678,511 kroner 2013). The relatively modest profit is explained by the large investments the company is making, among others, personnel costs increased nearly 3 million kronor between 2013 and 2014.

The entire board was reelected which includes Jan Aronson (Chairman), Paul Johansson and Håkan Skogsjö. Folke Brished was appointed as a substitute board member.
