Record Description

The collection consists of Stockholm city tax lists for the years 1835, 1845, 1868 and 1870.

Record Content

The records generally contain the following:

  • Name of tax payer
  • Birth date of tax payer
  • Residence within the city
  • Tax year
  • Date tax collected

How to Use the Record

To begin your search it is helpful to know;

  • Name of the taxpayer
  • Identifying information such as birth date or residence

Search the Collection

To search the collection by name fill in your ancestor’s name in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about those in the list to what you already know about your own ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person.

If you did not find the person you were looking for, you may need to search the collection image by image.
⇒ Select "Browse through images" on the initial collection page
⇒ Select the appropriate "År"
⇒ Select the appropriate "Distrikt"
⇒ Select the appropriate "Del" which takes you to the images

Look at the images one by one. Again you will need to compare the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor.

Be aware that with either search you may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination. Keep in mind:

  • There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
  • You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
  • Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.
  • If your ancestor used an alias or a nickname, be sure to check for those alternate names.
  • Even though these indexes are very accurate they may still contain inaccuracies, such as altered spellings, misinterpretations, and optical character recognition errors if the information was scanned.

For Help Reading These Records

These records are in Swedish so you will need to be able to understand written Swedish. For help with reading the records, please see the following wiki articles:

Using the Information

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors. For example use the place listed within the city to locate parish records and clerical surveys

Unable to Find Your Ancestor?

  • Look for variant spellings of the names. You should also look for nicknames and abbreviated names.
  • Search the indexes and records of nearby localities.
  • Try alternative search methods such as only filling in the surname search box (or the given name search box) on the landing page leaving the other box empty and then click on search. This should return a list of everyone with that particular name. You could then browse the list for individuals that may be your ancestor.
