Millions of Scandinavian Records Added at MyHeritage.com

I received an announcement from MyHeritage dealing with the posting of Sandinavian records this morning. The following is from Daniel’s note, as well as the MyHeritage blog. These folks are doing some cool things.

…we’ve just brought online millions of Scandinavian records – the majority of which have never been digitized or indexed online before.

Anyone with Scandinavian roots can search these records on SuperSearch and will receive matches to those records relevant to their family tree.

As of today, the entire 1930 Danish census (3.5 million records) is available online. This is thanks to our partnership with the National Archives of Denmark to index and digitize over 120 million records including all available Danish census records from 1787-1930 and Parish records from 1646 to 1915, all of which will be released during 2015 and 2016.

We’ve also added the Swedish Household Examination Rolls from 1880-1920, which includes 54 million records with 5 million color images, of which 22 million records are already available online. The remaining records are scheduled to go online before the end of June 2015. The household examination rolls are the primary register of the Swedish church, listing the residents of each parish, their families, and important life events such as births, marriages and deaths.

Following is a map of Sweden showing those counties in bold orange whose records were posted Feb. 17, 2015. Here’s some notes about the map from the MyHeritage blog:

Sweden-300pw

Västra Götaland: In 1997 this county was formed by merging the three counties of Göteborg och Bohus, Älvsborg, and Skaraborg.

Dalarna: In 1997 this county was renamed from Kopparberg.

Skåne: In 1997 this county was formed by merging the two counties of Kristianstad and Malmöhus.

I understand they have more Scandinavian records in the works!
