History[edit | edit source]

In 1963 this parish was created from Umeå Landsförsamling.

(2) Tavelsjö church registration district within Umeå county parish was formed on January 1, 1926 when the county parish was divided into two church registration districts. The other district was called Umeå Landsförsamling's southern church registration district, see Umeå Landsförsamling's church archives.

The church registration district ended on January 1, 1963 when Tavelsjö parish, corresponding to the former district, was broken out of Umeå county.

Tavelsjö parish was part of a joint pastorate with Umeå county parish (mother parish).

At the same time as the parish was formed in 1963, Umeå parish, Tegs parish and Tavelsjö parish formed a church community, Umeå parish church community. In addition to the church community, there was also from 1969 a common office for the parishes in Umeå, Umeå church central administration. The community and the central administration contain, among other things, minutes, real estate documents and accounts with personnel and salary documents. The community and the central administration form their own archives.

Umeå parish's church community and Umeå church's central administration were replaced on 1 January 1995 by Umeå church community, which also includes Umeå city parish and Ålidhem parish. As of 1998, Umeå Maria parish is also part of the community.

The parishes in Umeå established a joint cemetery administration in 1969 for the administration of questions about the funeral activities, see Umeå church community, the cemetery administration's archive (-1999). The archive includes minutes, burial books (even before 1969, the oldest from 1890) and other documents concerning funeral activities. The archive includes documents for the period before 1969.
