Extraction Forms | Swedish American Genealogical Research Services

Extraction Forms

I created the following extraction forms to standardize what information was collected from each type of record. Note however, that until late in the 19th century most records were not in any standard form. So even if the same information is collected it will not necessary be collected in the same order, and in many case different information will be collected. Please feel free to copy and alter these extraction forms as you need. Note the translations are my own and are meant to be useful and easy to understand for English speakers, thus they may vary from technically precise definitions.

Clerical Surveys (Husförhörslängd)

Husförhörslängd, often translated as clerical survey, were annual examinations of everyone’s religious knowledge. The records are usually organized by farm or small community so you may be able to determine relationships even if not stated outright. However, the records of contain much more than information about religious knowledge. They often contain information on birth, employment, relationship to others, marriage, migration, death, and more. Generally speaking, the earlier the record the less information it will have. Nevertheless, for those of us in the U.S. imagine an extremely detailed census taken every year! The survey books did not use standard forms until very late, however much of the same information was collected across the country and they are usually very easy to use. Click here for a much more detailed discussion of husförhörslängd. To find the correct extraction form, select the image or description closest to the record you are looking at: again there will be variations as there was no standard forms until late.
