According to an announcement in the ArkivDigital web site at

ArkivDigital provides the key to a very exciting story – the story about you!

Whether you’ve been researching for a long time or are just beginning, ArkivDigital has what you need: church books, estate inventories, tax registers, military rolls, spy documents, passenger ship manifests, Swedish American church books in Kansas, Minnesota and Nebraska, aerial photos and many other historical documents. In addition, there are many name searchable indexes that can make it easier for you to find your Swedish ancestors.

On Saturday, November 11th and Sunday, November 12th, we are giving free access to everyone who wants to try our ArkivDigital All-in-one service! New users and users with a Base subscription will get access to everything in our database including the, All-in-one, during the whole weekend.

Take the opportunity to research your Swedish heritage and discover the wealth of records in our online archive. Invite your friends and relatives to take advantage of this free offer. Enjoy the free days!

You can try it for yourself by starting at:


This is so exciting! I just discovered a few holes and now I can fill them! I love their site but let my subscription lapse when I thought I’d found everything.


It would be exciting, but when you get into the site you learn you are only allowed in a certain limited area. It is a great website, but expensive. I did subscribe for two years to work on my wife’s Swedish lines. If you have access to an LDS Family History Library, they should be available there. The images are among the best I have ever used. I never found any indexes, but used references from working in Salt Lake to get around.


I must change my comment. I had a very nice email from Kerstin Gustavsson at Arkiv Digital. Maybe it had been too long since I had used the site and I had forgotten or it was improved. Here’s what she said: Go to the following page:
Start the program by clicking the blue “Start the program” box.
Log in with your login details.
Then click on “Search the archive” and start researching.
I did that and was in like a flash and was able to work on the families I wanted. I am truly amazed at the quality of the images on these records. If you can’t handle the original book, this is the next best thing. Leonard
