Sweden Genealogy Genline Workbook

Standard Search Methods

The process of locating ancestors will eventually seem like the same procedure 
time after time. Well, that's because the same standard search method works time 
after time. As you go through the process, you may want to take notes about what 
you did so you will be able to do the same thing over and over again. Include 
notes on how you entered the records, what pages you accessed, how you opened 
any programs you used. Just anything and everything that will allow you to get 
back to where ever you go again.

My first thought is to give you a general idea of what to do. So here goes. 
First you have to start with a name of a person, their birth date, the parish 
where they were born. From that information, Genline can be the next step at 
finding parents of that person. Here is an overview of the steps to follow. 
A more complete checklist will be found on subsequent pages of this workbook. 
This overview is included just to give you an idea of how the Genline System works.

1. Click on the lšn for the person.
2. Click on the parish for the person.
3. Look for the birth record volume for the date needed.
4. Click on the table of contents when the image loads.
5. Determine pages where births are located.
6. Use the proportionality method to find a close page to start looking for the exact year.
7. Backward and forward from the start page to the actual page.
8. There you find the birth record. Print a copy of the announcement.
9. Record the GID number where you found the record on the Success page.
10. Enter the name of the father on a worksheet with his birth date and birth parish.
11. Enter the name of the mother on the worksheet with her birth date and birth parish.
12. Done with this person.
13. Go on to each parent. Repeat this process over and over to discover ancestors.
14. For each parent go to the farm in HER which includes year of child birth.

In the HER for the appropriate birth year, find the farm as mentioned in the birth 
announcement. In the HER, farms are often arranged alphabetically. But not always. 
There may be a village index (if you have lived a good life and are often lucky). Check all 
pages of the village index to find the farm. There may be a farm index at the 
back of the book. Check out the last few pages to see if there might be one. 
If there is no village index, try to locate the farm alphabetically. This is 
like hunt and peck.

Special Note: Keep in mind that each farm may have more than one page in the HER.

Another possibility of finding a farm is to look in earlier or later volumes. 
There may be an index of farms in one of them. Then you can use the proportionality 
method to perhaps find the farm you see in the volume without an index. I have 
noticed that at times Genline images have village indexes from one volume 
repeated for subsequent volumes. They must have done this for a reason. 
Use the technique yourself to save time.

Please Note My Disclaimer
The Genline methods described on the following pages are of my own design. 
They include what has allowed me to access the Genline records in a timely 
manner and get results. There may be better ways to find your ancestors. 
All I am sure of is that, if you follow the steps I give, you will most 
likely be able to locate your Swedish ancestors in the church records as 
provided by Genline. If you want to email me suggestions for inclusion in 
future editions of this workbook, great, and thanks. dularson@bellsouth.net

    Sweden Genealogy Genline Workbook

Available April 2006, this step-by-step workbook will help you identify and locate your Swedish ancestors. With a computer connected to the internet, thousands of resources are waiting to help you discover your pedigree. The recently completed digitization of Swedish church records by Genline opens the volumes of church records for even the smallest of villages for you to pursue the records to identify  your ancestors.

You will be assisted in finding the name, birth month and year of your immigrant ancestors. Then these details are used to identify the parish from which each immigrant ancestor originated before coming to North America. Once the parish of origin is known through investigation, the real hunt begins for the parents of each person. Then the hunt continues for their parents. And on and on.

You can expect to go back 6 generations or more depending on your diligence and patience.

A heavy grade good quality acid free paper is used for the production of this workbook to allow for it to be passed on from person to person over time.

The backs of each page remain blank so pertinent notes can be added to personalize the workbook where appropriate. Further, each page is three hole punched so the spiral binding can be removed and the pages eventually put in a three ring binder. With this, pages can be added as needed.

8 1/2 inch by 11 inch 140 pages, three hole punched with a plastic spiral binding. Written in English.
