Regarding naming  patterns in the featured article,  it all depended  on  where the people lived and the time period. Naming patterns in the cities was different than the rural areas.  Patronymics as a surname was used  the last 300  years (according to  Cradled in Sweden). Soldier  names  are a category of  itself.  The  featured article is too  generic. Ube Fröberg Morris 20:55, 17 February 2008 (MST)


FamilySearch Historical Records Links

Today there were 6 links added to the Research Tools section of the Sweden Portal page in the FamilySearch Wiki. All 6 links point to Historical Records for the Swedish collections.

The research tools area was intended to be a place for tools… not records. Pages that discuss the FamilySearch historical records collections for Sweden have already been linked to the church records articles for Sweden, which makes sense. Linking them to the county pages where there are indexing projects or historical records data also makes sense. But making the research tools box 1/3 larger in size for better visibility of historical records does not.

I think it would be a better use of space to have one page linking to Historical records for Sweden with the 6 links there. Even that link does not belong in the research tools area.
