They have a limited vocabulary: mother, father, born, bride, groom, married, etc. The rest of the content will be names, dates, and places, which do not need translation. *[[Swedish Genealogical Word List|This '''Swedish Word List''']] covers typical terms found in the records. *[ '''Swedish Historical Dictionary Database, SHDD''']: This interactive dictionary allows you to enter a word in the search box and receive the translation. *[[Moveable Feast Day Calendar for: Sweden|'''Feast Day Calendar (Moveable)''']] and [[Fixed and Moveable Feast Days for: Sweden|'''Feast Day Lists (Fixed and Moveable)''']] will help you translate dates written in feast day form.
*Sweden surnames are patronymic and change every generation, so carefully study [[Sweden Names, Personal|'''Sweden Names, Personal''']].
*For help with reading the column headings found in more recent records, see [[Media:Swedenish_Par_Reg_and_Exam_headingsSwedenish Par Reg and Exam headings.pdf|Swedish Parish Register and Household Exam Roll Headings]].
