Summary in English

This site contains information about genealogical research in the province of Skåne in the very south of Sweden.

You may have your research queries published free of charge on this site, easily accessed by anyone surfing by. Enjoy!

A new service started in 2007 is the "Genealogy Beeper", which is a smarter way to "google" for all the data hiding in private genealogy homepages in Sweden.

If you would like to get in touch with over 550 genealogists and discuss your research, the Scangen mailing list is available. The discussions are mostly in Swedish, but contributions in other languages are also welcome. We have quite a few English-speaking members and almost all Swedes understand the language.

Don't miss the Wide Database Search. Here you can search a number of Swedish and international databases from a single page.

An extensive links section is also available.

A selection of research projects are published, including name indices to some publications.

Regular visitors will find the page with changes and additions useful.
