Norway Farm Places[edit source]

Could you please assist in what you do with the Norway "subfarms" under main farms? Do you format these similarly as the main farms..... there does not seem to be any order to the names. Thank you for your help.Bamblh9 (talk)

Sweden Wikidata SVAR[edit source]


We are building a project in something called WIkidata that I guess the Swedish Genealogy project on Family search can use

For all "församlingar" Church parishes we will create on object and connect this object to SVAR (free church books), Maps of the "församling" available after 2008, etc....

==> that you could extent your Template:Infobox_Swedish_Parishes to link to those pages


more will come and we havnt cleaned everything yet but we hope in next month has usable data

Names in Parishes[edit source]

I have seen that you add names to a parish... There is a magic service in Sweden called SOFI that has old names of places that can help when you read the church books plus there maps in an application called Fornsøk that can help see map

more examples see task T200019 and picture
