==== Using the Information  ====
+
 
+
When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. You may find clues or new pieces of information about your ancestor. Add this new information to your records for the individual or family.
+
 
+
*Use christening and birth records of christenings (baptisms) to confirm a person’s birth date and place and to find their parent’s names.
+
*Use confirmation records to identify a person’s birth date and place and his or her age.
+
*Use death or burial records to identify a person’s birth date and place.
+
*Use marriage records to identify a couple and the marriage date and place and to begin compiling a family group. These are an excellent substitute for civil marriage records.
+
*Use church records in general to identify other family members who may have served as witnesses to an event.
+
 
+
=== Tips to Keep in Mind  ===
+
 
+
*Most church records list a residence. The residence is a clue to locating your ancestor in the clerical survey and can help you eliminate records that do not apply to your ancestor. The residence is often the name of a farm. If the farm is large it may be divided into smaller, numbered sections. Large cities may also be divided into smaller numbered sections.
+
*Titles may be clues to property ownership, occupations, rank or status within the community.
+
*It is often helpful to extract the information on all children with the same parents. Use the clerical survey to help you sort out which children belong to each set of parents.
+
*Locate this farm or numbered section on the clerical survey of the same parish for the same year as your ancestor’s christening, marriage, or death.
+
*Search all available clerical surveys during your ancestor’s life. Update your family group records with the new information you have found.
+
*Compare the information you find in a clerical survey with the parish register. You may find different information in each record.
+
*You may need to search the records of other parishes as your ancestors may have moved in from (infra) or moved to (utfra) another parish.
+
 
+
=== Unable to Find Your Ancestor?  ===
+
 
+
*Check for variant spellings of the names as well as nicknames.
+
*Search the records of nearby parishes.
+
 
+
=== Help with the Language  ===
+
 
+
These records are in Swedish so you will need to be able to understand written Swedish. For help with reading the records, please see the following wiki articles:
