History[edit | edit source]

Jörns parish was formed in 1834 as a chapel law within Norsjö parish. The parish was divided into two church registration districts on January 1, 1926; Jörn's western church accounting district and Jörn's eastern church accounting district. The division ended on December 31, 1941. However, the documents of both church accounting districts are recorded in Jörn's church archives.

Jörns parish was part of a common pastorate with Norsjö parish (mother parish) 1834-1892. From 1892 (decision 25 April 1871) Jörns parish formed its own pastorate.

Some villages occur over time in different parishes' house examinaton books: Kvarnliden, Kåtaselet, Missenträsk, Risnabben, Risträsk and Stensträsk, which are later included in Jörn's parish, are in Arvidsjaur's house examination books A I: 1-6.

In the appendix to the history (scanned file) is available: 1) list of properties that Jörn's western church accounting district covered, 2) list of villages in Skellefteå county parish house examination books that later came to belong to Jörn parish.
