Blogg på engelska – Blog in English

Blogg på engelska
Vi har uppmärksammat att det finns en stor efterfrågan av information på engelska. Därför lanserade vi i början av november en ny ArkivDigital-blogg; blog.arkivdigital.net. Där är alla inlägg och all information skriven på engelska. Många blogginlägg kommer att behandla samma ämnen som på den svenska bloggen, medan andra är mer specifikt riktade till användare som behöver hjälp med att förstå det svenska språket och hur man bär sig åt för att forska i Sverige. Du kan även finna information om Nordamerikanska evenemang på den engelska bloggen.

Utforska den engelska bloggen.

We have seen many requests for information in English. As a result, we launched a new ArkivDigital blog in the beginning of November; blog.arkivdigital.net. On this blog, all of the posts and all the information is written in English. Many posts will be addressing the same subjects as on the Swedish blog, but there will also be posts that are more specifically angled towards helping users understand the Swedish language and how to do research in Sweden. You will also find information about North American events on the English blog.

Swedish Church Book Tutorials

Swedish GenealogyThe Swedish church books are usually the first Swedish records that one uses when tracing one’s Swedish roots. These records are a ”gold mine” because they are so complete and contain such detailed information. In many cases, one can trace a person’s life in the church books from birth to death or birth to emigration.

We often hear from many people who have Swedish ancestry but don’t speak Swedish, that they are intimidated by the Swedish church books because they are in Swedish. But there is no need to be. The church books consist primarily of tables of names, places and dates. Yes, there are Swedish words but these words are used repeatedly. Once one becomes familiar with the commonly used words, researching in the church books becomes relatively easy.

On our website, you will find a section titled, Swedish Genealogy. In this section, you will find record examples and translations for birth, marriage, death, household examination and moving records and much more.
