Begin your search with an ancestor who has a known birth, marriage, or death date and place. It may be necessary to go to a more recent generation to begin your search.

== Known Issues with This Collection  ==
  
Follow these steps:
+
{{HR Known Issues}}For a full list of all known issues associated with this collection see the attached [[Sweden, Västernorrland Church Records (FamilySearch Historical Records)/Known Issues|Wiki article]]. If you encounter additional problems, please email them to [mailto:support@familysearch.org support@familysearch.org.] Please include the full path to the link and a description of the problem in your e-mail. Your assistance will help ensure that future reworks will be considered.  
 
+
1. Search the parish register of that place for an entry of this ancestor’s baptism, marriage, or death. This will verify the information you have.
+
 
+
*When you locate the baptism, marriage, or death record for your ancestor in the parish register carefully compare the information in the entry to what you already know about your ancestor to determine if this is the correct person.
+
*Make a record of all the information given in the entry. This entry may give you enough additional information to create a family record if you do not already have one.
+
*Tip: The witnesses or sponsors are often relatives.
+
*Tip: You may need to compare the information of more than one person to make this determination.
+
 
+
2. 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”. The entry is telling you that the person or persons named are living in the following place.
+
 
+
3. 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.
+
 
+
4. 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.
+
 
+
*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.
+
 
+
5. 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.
+
 
+
6. 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  ==
+
 
+
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.
