Why Should I Look at This Collection?

The church was the primary registrar of all vital events in Sweden. These records will contain births, baptisms, marriages, confirmations, movement in and out of the parish, and deaths and burials. The names of the principals of each event will generally be recorded, along with their residence and any other persons who may be associated with the event.

What is in This Collection?

The collection consists of church records from the county of Örebro. It contains indexes to births, marriages, and deaths along with images of:

The records are handwritten in narrative style. For additional details about these records and help using them see Sweden Church Records - FamilySearch Historical Records.

Digital Image Collection

A detailed description of the images in this collection is available in the wiki article FamilySearch Digital Image Collection for Örebro, Sweden. The article lists all the parishes in Örebro along with the following:

  • Associated digital genealogical society (DGS) numbers
  • Name of parish
  • Swedish archival letter code by the record type
  • Volume and Years
  • Remarks from the national archives that offers some detail into the content of the record. These remarks are in Swedish, but most of the words are key genealogical terms

The columns can be sorted by clicking on the box by the title of each column. Place lists can be found on the actual parish pages. Most of the microfilming done by the Genealogical Society of Utah in Sweden took place in the 1950s. Since that time some volumes have been renumbered or reclassified by the archives. As a result, the information you may see on the microfilming title board may not exactly match the description in the table below. Some collections have had records added to them since they were microfilmed. Because of this, the description in the Volume and Year and Remarks columns may indicate that records are available beyond the time when they were filmed. In these cases you should contact the national or regional archive to determine what is accessible
