  • Church Records

All the early church records were destroyed in the fire of 1807. The birth, marriage, and death records begin in 1809 and are consistent forward in time after that. There is a communion record that spans from 1768 to 1822. The flyttningsattester span 1815 to 1878. The earliest Husförhörslängd is begins in 1810. They are consistent up to 1895 when they were changed over to Församlingsböcker. The Husföhör seem to be kept well although they do not list the birth place, or a birth day and month up until about 1865.
