Swedish taxation records, a head tax of individuals between the ages of 15 and 63, are some of the oldest extant records of the rural farmer. Genealogists quickly become familiar with the chronological birth/marriage/death parish records (Ministerial), the clerical surveys (Husförhör) and probate records (Bouppteckning). These documents form the bedrock of investigation into our Swedish past.  These records may not, however, answer our more difficult research questions, especially those of the 18th century. This is where Swedish taxation records or mantalslängder may be of help. These little used records, but evidence rich documents, may corroborate or dispute our existing evidence, or may be the only source of evidence. We will learn how to access, read and use these records to answer those questions.

This was presented to a live webinar audience on February 20, 2018. 1 hour 26 minutes, plus 7 pages of handouts. The recording is also included as part of the monthly or annual membership.
