FamilySearch Record Search This article describes a collection of historical records available at FamilySearch.org.

Contents

Title in the Language of the Records

Sverige, Orebro, Kyrkoböcker Register

Record Description

The collection consists of church records from the county of Örebro for the years 1613-1918 with an index for the years 1635 to 1860. It contains clerical surveys, registers of birth, marriage, death, move-in and move-out lists, confirmations, church accounts, and indexes to births, marriages, and deaths. The earliest records are handwritten in narrative style, and all events were recorded chronologically. After a few years, the records were grouped by event and recorded in separate books. Keep in mind that not all record types are available for all parishes.

The collection uses the same record classifications to identify the content of each book as those specified by the National Archives of Sweden. Because of this, the information on the titleboard image may not match the description of the record in the online Historical Records collection or in the Family History Catalog. The information used to create the descriptions was provided by the Archives of Sweden. For a complete list of the record classifications see the section “How to Use the Records” below, or the wiki article: Sweden: Church Archive Cataloging Plan.

For a list of records by parishes published in this collection, select the Browse.

Suggested citation format for a record in this collection.

Coverage Table

A coverage table for Örebro is available in the wiki article FamilySearch Digital Image Collection for Örebro, Sweden

The coverage table lists all the parishes in Örebro along with the following:

  • Associated digital genealogical society (DGS) numbers
  • Name of parish
  • Swedish archival letter code by the record type
  • Volume and Years
  • Remarks from the national archives that offers some detail into the content of the record. These remarks are in Swedish, but most of the words are key genealogical terms.

The columns can be sorted by clicking on the box by the title of each column. Place lists can be found on the actual parish pages.

Tips about the Coverage Table
  • Most of the microfilming done by the Genealogical Society of Utah in Sweden took place in the 1950s. Since that time some volumes have been renumbered or reclassified by the archives. As a result, the information you may see on the microfilming titleboard may not exactly match the description in the table below.
  • Some collections have had records added to them since they were microfilmed. Because of this, the description in the Volume and Year and Remarks columns may indicate that records are available beyond the time when they were filmed. In these cases you should contact the national or regional archive to determine what is accessible.
