==== Search the Collection  ====
+
 
+
Place the information you have into the appropriate fields in the search screen and press search. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.
+
 
+
==== Using the Information  ====
+
 
+
Use the information from the list of possible matchs to locate your ancestors in the original church records.
+
 
+
::Remember - This collection is only an index to the original church records.
+
 
+
When you have located your ancestor's original church record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details.
+
 
+
::Tip - Make a photocopy of the record, or extract the genealogical information needed.
+
::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.
+
 
+
The information may also lead you to other records about your ancestors. The following steps can help you learn more about your family:
+
 
+
*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.
+
 
+
::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.
+
 
+
*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.
+
 
+
::Tip - In Sweden, the ministers were required to keep a yearly census of their parish. This is called the Husförhörslängd or clerical survey.
+
 
+
*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.
+
 
+
::Tip - These entries usually include many biographical details of each individual within the family.
+
::Tip - The witnesses or sponsors are often relatives.
+
 
+
*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.
+
 
+
*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.
+
 
+
== Collection History  ==
+
 
+
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&nbsp;the Record Was Created  ===
+
 
+
Church records provided a complete record of vital events for the population.
+
 
+
=== Collection Reliability  ===
+
 
+
Lutheran church records are very accurate.
