Translation Skills

Some records are impossible to read for many reasons. You may find the correct volume 
and even the right page where details are written that you need to know, but the 
details may be impossible to read.

Some pages that were photographed in the 1950-1960's and digitized just recently are 
very dark. Although some adjustment is possible in the screen image intensity, some 
pages will remain illegible. There's not much that can be done to make all  the 
handwriting readable. 

Another type of image which will be near impossible to read is one where there is 
bleed through from the other side of the page. And then there will be pages with 
lines through handwriting that makes the original data impossible to read. This 
often happens when a person or family moves from one parish to another.

The variety of handwriting ranges from beautifully flowing script with ornate 
flourishes to pitifully cramped pen scratches with too much ink. Eventually you will 
develop an eye for the handwriting.

When you definitely need a specific piece of data, but can not decipher it yourself, 
you may need to ask for help from an expert. Genline offers a service for a certain 
number if dollars per hour which seems reasonable. Perhaps researchers in Sweden can 
go to the original pages to get a better read on what you need. Regardless of how they 
do it, some help may be just enough to get on with your research. Find more about this 
service at Genline.

Fortunately much of the handwriting and most of the images are wonderful. In fact, the 
handwriting is a pleasure to read. And as I access a page of details about my ancestors,
I often think that I may be the only person to have looked at these details in over 100 
or 200 years. Neat.

PARISH CATALOGS
Parish catalogs are available for most of the parishes in the following län: Blekinge, Gävleborgs, Göteborgs och Bohus, Hallands, Jämtlands, Jönköpings, Kalmar, Kopparbergs, Kronobergs, Norrbottens, Skaraborgs, Södermanlands, Uppsala, Värmlands, Västerbottens, Västernorrlands, Västmanlands, Älvsborgs, and Östergötlands. The parish catalog prices range from $10.00 to $30.00, including sales tax, postage, and handling. Please note that the parish catalogs do not contain actual parish records with names of people. For information about actual parish records, see PARISH RECORDS above. The parish catalogs are indexes that tell you where on the microfiche (purchased separately) you will find a specific village or farm. They contain only names of farms and villages within a given parish. Note also that not every parish has a parish catalog available. To see which parishes have catalogs available and their prices, click here.

Parish catalogs also serve as handy lists of place names within parishes, which will help you when trying to decipher names of farms and villages within the records.

    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.

Click HERE to see the pedigree developed by the author David Ullian Larson.

Click HERE to see a description of each topic covered in the workbook.

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.
