Population Register 1941 (Mantalslängd)

On ArkivDigital you will find population registers (mantalslängder) for 1941. These records can be helpful in researching an area where the congregation records or vital records are not published online because of Swedish privacy regulations.

As of March 4, 2014, the 1941 population registers for all counties except Stockholm are available in ArkivDigital’s online library. Population registers for Stockholm County have been photographed and will be published online in the near future.

Most of these records are typewritten so they are easy to read. You will find the following types of information in these records: place name, names of persons living at the place, birth date, birth place, marital status. 

The easiest way to search for a 1941 population register is to search for the parish and then look for the 1941 population register volume in the list of volumes for that parish. The 1941 population registers are arranged alphabetically by the place name in the parish. 

While there are many column headings on the population records for 1941, information is usually only entered in a few columns such as home or apartment address or place name, land register number, person’s name, birth date, birth place and marital status.
