Record Description

This collection consists of digital images of microfilms of Swedish church records held by the Family History Library. Microfilming of the records began in the 1940s, with conversion to digital images beginning in 2006. These records contain accounts of baptisms, marriages, burials, household examinations, and other records kept by the clergy. It also includes records that supplement these events, as well as lists of person moving in and out of the parish, confirmation, communion attendance, and accounts of the church’s income and expenses, as well as other records.

Searching This Collection

There are two ways to use this collection.  One is to view the images (browse), and the other is to search the indexed records.  The browse works by selecting the geographic location you are interested in, first by county, then by the name of the parish (församling).  Once you have selected a parish, you will be presented a list of available volumes.  Select one, and the image viewer will open and display the first image.  You can move through the images by using the naviagation arrows or entering an image number in the image number field.  Please note that image numbers and page numbers are not the same.

Citing FamilySearch Historical Collections

When you copy information from a record, you should list where you found the information. This will help you or others to find the record again. As these records are available from several sites, the source citation should clearly identify the original source.  If your genealogical database allows it, the unique information specific to the provider of the image or record should be included in your source details, and not be included as if it were the original source.

Citation for This Collection

The following citation examples refers to the original source of the data and images published on Historical Records.  Each identifies the geographic location of and name of the parish, the volume, page, and entry number where the information was found.

Identifying the collection using the title of the Historical Records collection (for example, Sweden, Jönköping Church Records, 1581-1935; index 1633-1860) obscures the actual source of the information, and is not recommended.

Examples of Source Citations for a Record Found in This Collection

  • Sweden, Jönköping. Värnamo församling. C I Födelse- och dopböcker. Huvudserien 1, 1825-1854, p. 175 #7. Baptism of Johan August Andreasson.
  • Svenska kyrkan. Värnamo socken, Jönköping. Födelse- och dopböcker, C I:1 (1825-1854): 175 #7

The first sample is cut and pasted from the browse hierarchy displayed on Historical Records.  The second sample provides the same information with some non-essential elements removed.  The second and third samples use the same authority as found in the Family History Library Catalog with the county name added.  This is important as there are several places in different counties in Sweden that have the same name.  In the second sample the name of the record series is omitted for brevity.  The second and third samples also omit the name of the principal in the record as it more appropriately belongs in citation detail.

Gyldensten gods

Gyldensten Estate, Odense, Denmark

DenmarkGotoarrow.pngOdense Gotoarrow.png Gyldensten gods


Gyldensten (also called Gyldensteen) was originally called Enggård and for many years owned by the Skinkel family. In the 1500s this farm and estate, among others, were owned by members of the Daa family, but the estate's history was also marked by a number of property ownership disputes. In the 1600s, it was owned in turn by the Rud, Krabbe, Scheel and Rosenkrantz of Enggård families. In 1718 the estate was deeded to war Commissioner Christian Carl Gabel, who was also the owner of the nearby farms, Oregård and Uggerslevgård, in addition to other estates on Fyn.
A French immigrant, Jean Henri Huguetan, who in 1717 was made a Danish Count, bought Enggård with the adjoining property of Gabel. In 1720 he had his acquisitions elevated to the status of county under the name of Gyldensteen. After his death in 1749, the estate passed into the women's line and came thus to Count Johan Heinrich Knuth. After Count Knuth's death the Gyldensteen estate passed to his daughter, Constance Frederikke Henriette Knuth, who brought Jerstrup manor into the estate's ownership. Constance's son from her first marriage, Andreas Erich Heinrich Ernst Bernstorff, received the estate and in 1829 acquired Harritslevgård followed by Sandagergård in 1834. In the rest of the 1800s and 1900s the estate has been in the possession of the family Bernstorff-Gyldensteen. The county was transferred in 1922 to free property, and the estate was subdivided into the estates of Uggerslev, Oregård and Hugget.
