==== Using the Information ====
+
== FamilySearch Historical Record Collections ==
  
Use the information from the list of possible matchs to locate your ancestor’s record. Carefully evaluate each piece of information given. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details.
+
*[[Sweden Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Blekinge Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
::Tip - Make a photocopy of the record, or extract the genealogical information needed.
+
*[[Sweden, Gotland Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
::Tip - Add any new information to your records of each family. This entry may also give you enough additional information to create a family record if you do not already have one.
+
*[[Sweden, Gävleborg Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Göteborg och Bohus Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
The information may also lead you to other records about your ancestors. The following steps can help you learn more about your family:
+
*[[Sweden, Jämtland Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Jönköping Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
*Look in the entry for the residence where your ancestor is living. It may be the name of a farm, the number on a farm or the number or small jurisdiction within a city.
+
*[[Sweden, Kalmar Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Kopparberg Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
::Tip - Farms are named in Scandinavia. If the farm is large enough it will be divided into numbered sections. Cities are also divided into similar numbered sections. One clue to finding the residence is to look for an “i.” In Swedish this is the word “in.” What the entry is telling you is the person or persons named are living in the following place.
+
*[[Sweden, Kristianstad Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Kronoberg Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
*Locate this farm or numbered section on the clerical survey (Husförhörslängd) of the same parish for the same year as your ancestor’s christening, marriage, or death.
+
*[[Sweden, Malmöhus Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Norrbotten Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
::Tip - In Sweden, the ministers were required to keep a yearly census of their parish. This is called the Husförhörslängd or clerical survey.
+
*[[Sweden, Skaraborg Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Stockholm Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
*Search the clerical survey for your ancestor’s family. Sometimes the families are in alphabetical order, but usually you will need to read each family entry of the farm or numbered section. When you locate your family, make a record of all the information given in the entry.
+
*[[Sweden, Södermanland Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Uppsala Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
::Tip - These entries usually include many biographical details of each individual within the family.
+
*[[Sweden, Värmland Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
::Tip - The witnesses or sponsors are often relatives.
+
*[[Sweden, Västerbotten Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Västernorrland Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
*Using the information found in the clerical survey entry, continue to search each succeeding or preceding year. Update your family group records with the new information you have found.
+
*[[Sweden, Västmanland Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden, Älvsborg Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
*When you have completed searching the clerical surveys, return to the parish register and verify the new information in the parish register. You may need to search additional parish registers as your ancestors may have moved in from (infra) or moved to (utfra) another parish.

== Record History  ==
+
*[[Sweden Baptisms (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
 
+
*[[Sweden Marriages (FamilySearch Historical Records)]]
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.

=== Why the Record Was Created  ===
+
 
+
Church records provided a complete record of vital events for the population.
+
 
+
=== Record Reliability  ===
+
 
+
Lutheran church records are very accurate.
