Heads up if you’re researching ancestors in Sweden:
Swedish genealogy records site ArkivDigital is
offering free access to its database of more than 36 million images of Swedish church
books and other records this weekend, August 25 and 26.
You’ll need to register with the site and install the site’s software—check
out the free access instructions here (scroll down for a link to a beta version
of the software that lets you use English).
I can’t tell for sure from the site, but it looks like you browse the books rather
than search by name—so you’ll need to have a good idea of where and when your ancestor
lived in Sweden. To find out whether the site has records for your ancestor’s county
and parish, click the county name on the
right side of this page.
