Known Issues

Question #1: I cannot view these images even when I sign in with my FamilySearch Account login. How can I view the images?
Answer #1: FamilySearch has limited rights, given by the record custodian, to publish the Sweden, Östergötland Church Records, 1555-1911; index 1616-1860 collection online. These images can be viewed with an LDS login (members of the contributing organization, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) and at a local FamilySearch Center. Please contact the FamilySearch Center to verify that they are certified to view these images.

These records on microfilm can also be ordered into a FamilySearch Center for viewing. See Ordering Microfilm or Microfiche for instructions on finding film numbers and ordering the film. The original copies of the Church records before 1895 are preserved by the National and Regional Archives in Sweden.

Records can also be viewed through the Internet using sites such as SVAR, Genline, and Arkiv Digital. All three require a subscription for access (Genline is available at some FamilySearch Centers.)
