This data base was produced by Sveriges Släktforskarförbund (Federation of Swedish Genealogical Societies) and contains information about all people who were registered in a Swedish parish at the end of the year 1890. It contains 4.8 million people. Information was obtained from the transcripts of the church household examination records, prepared by the parish vicar or clerk and sent to the SCB ¬(Statistiska Centralbyrån in Stockholm).

Individuals are grouped in families and households. Information about each person usually includes a name, year of birth, occupation or title, family status, place of residence and birth. Sometimes there are notes about health, legal status or other interesting facts.

[Note: This database is in the English language but there is another CD-ROM version in Swedish. The Swedish version is called “Sveriges Befolkning 1890”. It is CD-ROM no.1564 at the Family History Library.]
