In birth or baptism records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or baptism, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.

For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records.

Church records and civil registration were official records and are some of the most reliable sources of information available for those who were born, married, or died in Sweden.
