Scanian Genealogy

Summary in English

This site contains information about genealogical research in Scandinavia.
You may have your research queries published free of charge on this site, easily accessed by anyone surfing by.
A new service started in 2007 is the Genealogy Beeper, which is a smarter way to "google" for all the data hiding in databases and private genealogy homepages in Sweden. Reach over 20 million names!
Swedish church records and other source material is nowadays available in an increasing degree over the internet. Scangen provides an overview of what is accessible from the online services SVAR, Arkiv Digital and Genline. A Genline specific GID number identifies the source and Scangen provides a GID Converter to unravel what lies behind this code. This is useful if you do not have a Genline subscription but want to find an original record from another service.
The Scangen mailing list has been active without interruption since 1995. The discussions are mostly in Swedish, but contributions in other languages are also welcome. Today most questions are posted in the web forum, and sent to the mailing list. These must be answered in the forum, not by e-mail.
An extensive links section is also available.
A selection of research projects are published, including name indices to some publications.
Regular visitors will find the page with changes and additions useful.
