Risbäck Church

History[edit | edit source]

Risbäck parish was formed in 1905 as a chapel parish by breaking out of Dorotea parish. The area had previously been a chaplaincy within Dorotea. The new parish included Avasjö, Brännåker, Båtas 1 and 2, Dabbnäs, Harrsjön or Harrsjöhöjden, Lövsjö, Risbäck, Rissjön, Sandvik, Storbäck, Stornäs, Subben el Subbme, Söderfors 1 and 2, Tvärsele and Lillånäset. As of January 1, 1927, Risbäck has been an annex parish. The parish formed a joint pastorate with Dorotea parish (mother parish). From 1980, the two congregations also formed a church community with a common economy. The documents of the pastorate and the church community are included in the Dorotea church archives. Risbäck has its own house examination books from 1883. Other church registration documents begin in 1905. For the period before 1905, see Dorotea church archives. School documents are included in the Dorotea church archives.
