What is the Swedish Church Records archive?

Genline's Swedish Church Records archive consists of photographic quality images scanned from microfilm of the original church records. These microfilms are direct copies of the masters kept at the Swedish National Archives in Stockholm.

What Swedish Church Records are included in our archive?

Our church records archive includes records from the 16th-20th century. These records consist of birth/baptismal, confirmation, marriage, death/burial, church ledgers and household examination rolls. These are the main sources of genealogical information in Sweden. In some cases we will be complementing these church records with those kept by a government agency known as Statistics Sweden (abbreviated as SCB).

Why are some volumes in the Swedish Church Records archives missing?

We are aware that there are still some missing volumes in the Swedish Church Records archives. In some cases the film lists that we have purchased from the Swedish National Archives have not been accurate and genline is trying to locate the missing material.

Parallel to this, our production staff has started to check the volumes in the Swedish Church Records archive to verify that they have been published correctly.

Parishes currently available - Genline :: Products and Prices
also available at Helsingborg Library which I visited on Saturday to search in the local collection.

Helsingborgs stad - Stadsbiblioteket: "Mitt i centrum och mitt i Stadsparken höjer sig biblioteket i mörkbrunt Helsingborgstegel. Biblioteket ritades av arkitekten Jörgen Michelsen och invigdes 1965. Under 2004 renoverades och förnyades Helsingborgs Stadsbibliotek."

from my email:-
You dont have to go to Sweden for that - Gentofte hovedbibliotek in Denmark has
Genline too.

but you have to know which parish to go for and that is not possible one the
computers downstairs where genline is on. You have to search for the parish
on your own computer at home.

On the whole Gentofte hovedbibliotek is rather good. I have sent them down
into the store lots of times for Kraks vejviser!

They also have Berlingeren, but their film apparater are difficult, I always
get someone to do it for me.

also I see:-
