Revision as of 18:48, 12 September 2008

There are several societies and organizations in Sweden that may have valuable information for your genealogical research. Many Swedish communities have genealogical and historical societies, called hembygdsföreningar, many of which publish books and periodicals. You can write to Riksförbundet för hembygdsvård for an address of a local hembygdsförening. (See the "History" section of this outline for the address.)

There may also be some Swedish societies in the country your ancestor immigrated to, especially in the United States.

Genealogical Societies

Many societies publish periodicals, transcripts, and compiled genealogies. They may also have special indexes, collections, and projects. Some publish queries about Swedish ancestors or maintain a list of members' research interests. Some specialize in the immigrants to a specific area. The following societies may be of interest:

Genealogiska Föreningen

(The Genealogical Association of Sweden)
Box 2029
S-103 11 Stockholm
Sweden
Internet: http://www.genealogi.net/engresearch.htm

The Genealogical Association of Sweden (Genealogiska Föreningen) was founded in 1933 and has as its objective “the promotion of Swedish genealogical research and the creating of interest for the same.” Its headquarters are located in the former National Archives of Stockholm, with the address: Genealogiska Föreningen, Arkivgatan 3, S-111 28 Stockholm, Sweden. Total membership runs over 5,000, scattered in all of Sweden. A list of the names and addresses of the association members are published now and then in its quarterly magazine Släkt och Hävd (Family and Origin).

The magazine was started in 1934 under the name of Genealogiska Föreningens Månadsblad. In 1950 the name was changed to the present title. Every number contains a list of additions to the association's archive, many of them being more or less elaborate family genealogies just published.

The association has a large index of family names, Släktnamnsregistret, and a geographical index, Geografiska registret, divided into provinces (landskap), cities (städer) and districts (härader, tingslag, skeppslag or bergslag).

Both indexes are microfilmed and the FHLC numbers to Släktnamnsregistret are as follows:

Aab-Bot  --  # 383557
Bou-Ehr --   # 383558
Eic-Grö --  #383559
Gua-Kio --  #383560
Inb-Loo --   #3 83561
Loo-Rip --  #383562
Rua-Smi --  #383563
Smi-Utt --  #383564
Vac-Ött -- #383565
The call number to Geografiska registret is #383566. An index of authors of genealogical literatures is listed under the call Number #383565.

Personhistoriska Samfundet
          (The Personal History Association of Sweden)
          Box 34106
          S-100 26 Stockholm
          Sweden
          Internet: http://www.personhistoriskasamfundet.se/system/english.html

As the name indicates, this organization is more interested in the history of the individual person or family, while Genealogiska Föreningen places its stress more on the genealogical facts of a person or family. The headquarters are located in the National Archives. Research results are published in the association quarterly, called Personhistorisk Tidskrift, published since 1898. The general index 1898-1956 of this publication contains more than 40,000 names. It is available on microfilm at the Family History Library with the following call numbers:

Aaby-Benedictus  --   #254961
Bengt- Erik  --  #254962 
Erikska-Ingolphus  --   #254963
Ingrid-Mikkola  --   #254964
Milen-Sköring   --  #254965
Sladerbach-Öström  --   #254966

Sveriges Släktforskarförbund

Sveriges Släktforskarförbund (The Swedish Genealogical Association)
This association was founded in 1986 by the local genealogical associations as a common organ of the Swedish genealogical movement. Its excellent magazine Släkthistoriskt Forum (The Family History Forum) is published five times per year. The headquarters are located at Första Långgatan 20, S-413 28 Göteborg, Sweden.

Historical Societies

Swedish historical societies can be valuable sources of information. Such societies exist in countries where Swedish emigrants settled, and they often collect information about Swedish immigrants. Many societies have special collections of books and manuscript material for Sweden that may be hard to find in libraries and archives. Two historical societies are:

The Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center
Augustana College
639 Thirty-Eighth Street
Rock Island, IL 61201-2296
USA
Internet: http://www.augustana.edu/swenson/
Swedish-American Historical Society, Inc.
5125 North Spaulding Avenue
Chicago, IL 60625
USA
Internet: http://www.swedishamericanhist.org/

These societies' collections of family and local histories and manuscripts may be helpful. The material in their collections can be circulated.
