== Record History<br>  ==
 
The Lutheran Church was the official church in Sweden and the ministers recorded all vital events. The ministers also compiled a yearly census of each family within the parish arranged by farm or dwelling. After 1860, the ministers were required to send a yearly summary of all vital events to the government. Almost all of the population is covered in these records.
