New Database From Sweden: Förteckning Över Emigranter Fran O Stergotland

Posted by on

Förteckning Över Emigranter Fran O Stergotland is’s first database from Sweden. This database will be FREE to access until March 11th.

The database contains a list of emigrant records from 1851-1860. Within the database is a list of all of the names of the heads of households and single persons that applied for passports at the county government office in Linkoping.

The passport journals were later copied in 1856 and 1861 and were sent to the Tabellverket in Stockholm. This list is a transcription from the microfilm of the copies in Tabellverket.

The content for this database was provided by Elisabeth Thorsell of Järfälla, Sweden, editor of Släkthistoriskt Forum (1992-2001), and also co-author of various manuals on Swedish genealogy. Thorsell also has a great deal of experience in doing Swedish research for Americans.
