This CD-ROM can be searched in either the English or Swedish language.

The Swedish Census 1900 is a complete database containing all persons who were registered in Sweden in the end of 1900. This was about 5.2 million people. The database contains computerized transcripts of household examination rolls which were prepared by the parish vicar or clerk and sent to the government agency. The name of the person, place of residence and parish, year of birth and parish, occupation/position in family are usually given.

Searches can be performed in numerous ways. Since children living at home at that time were not recorded with surnames in the records, searches for children can be done by combining known facts about parents and even names of siblings.
