Free Weekend in Swedish Archives Site ArkivDigital - March 15/16

Genea-Musings reader Al Johnson in Illinois passed this information to me.

The ArkivDigital email newsletter for 11 March 2014 announced that the website would be free to access on March 15 and 16, 2014 (presumably Sweden time).  You can read the entire newsletter at

The newsletter says:

"ArkivDigital invites all who are interested in their Swedish history free access to our entire online historical archive on Saturday and Sunday (March 15-16, 2014). Take the opportunity to discover the wealth of records in the archive including the church books, tax registers, court records, muster rolls, seaman records, name registers, ship manifests, prison records and many other types of records. 

"To access ArkivDigital online for free during this weekend and if you are already registered, use your previous login details (Email address and Password). If you do not have a user account with us, go to the register formand create an account and then install ArkivDigital online
"All current subscriptions will be extended two days because of the two free days (March 15-16)."

This is an excellent opportunity to look for your Swedish ancestors on this website it you have not done so before.

Thank you, Al, for the heads up.

Thanks for Posting this. FYI/ The site has an English button to help those that don't understand Swedish and many translated forms to help us who don't read Swedish.
