This database was created by the DIS (Föreningen för Datorhjälp I Släktforskningen) society and contains over 38 million entries of individuals who lived in Sweden before 1905. Source information to SVAR, and Genline is included where possible as well as 500,000 records from SVAR’s birth record database.
