Population Registers 1941

From FamilySearch Wiki

The 1941 mantalslängder for most parts of Sweden have been digitized by ArkivDigital and can be searched as part of the parish collection. ArkivDigital calls these records the population registers and lists them after the church book collections with other miscellaneous records pertaining to the parish (towards the bottom or end).

By 1941 Sweden had forms that were used to record the tax information and a wealth of information was recorded in them as shown by the column headings. They are a great help in doing research in the 1900’s.

The population registers were arranged by village/farm or by quarter/number. They are not available at other subscription websites or at the Family History Library and the FamilySearch Centers.
