Backgound

If your ancestor was educated in a Swedish university, he may have been recorded in the matriculation records of that university. Some of these records have been published, notably for the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. These records may contain valuable information about your ancestor, such as name, age, hometown, and date of enrollment or graduation. Sometimes they contain biographical information, including names of parents, spouse, and children.
