Introduction to Swedish Church Books

Kathy Meade

The 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.  This lecture will give an overview of the Swedish church records: births, marriages, deaths, household examination records and records of movement. Using a case study, a demonstration will show how one can use the church books to trace one’s Swedish heritage.
