Description of the Records

  • The Sweden, church records were handwritten and may be difficult to read.
  • This project has three main types of records: Births and Baptisms, Banns and Marriages, and Deaths and *Burials.
  • It will require careful scrutiny of the records to determine the type because there are many different formats. There are paragraph formats and table formats.
  • Columns, when they exist, do not always have headings to define the contents.
  • The order of information for the fields to be indexed varies from record to record.
