Good News

Good news for Bjursås researchers! You have earlier husförhörslängd (household examinations) available to you than previously thought.

Records were found among those for Leksand församling (parish) that did not seem to belong to Leksand. They turned out to be those for Bjursås. There is a notation on the Leksand husförhörslängder list inside the books to this effect. Why they are with the Leksand records is unclear. Bjursås does show as part of the Leksand kontract (set of parishes), and the Leksand tingslag (a judicial district) in a later time period. Each of these has a note on the SVAR Web site. For AI:5 – “Includes Gopa skriftelag in Bjursås, which was moved there 1792. For 1695-1701, only communion record.” And for AI:6 - “Valid from 1709 to 1735. Includes Gopa skriftelag in Bjursås, which was moved there 1792.” These village names do appear in the Leksand vital records for the late 1600's and the early 1700's time period. Perhaps the Gopa area was sharing the Leksand parish priest.

Current published listings for Bjursås parish at the Nationell ArkivDatabas (NAD), on Genline, at Ancestry.com, and on the Family History Library Catalog (FHLC), all show that husförhörslängd for Bjursås start in 1710. These two volumes cover 1690-1707 and 1709-1735, respectively, for villages in the Gopa area. Here are the villages (with original spellings), the time periods covered (there are notations in the records for later dates than the examinations are for), and where they are found in the books:
