I'm not sure whose record you are trying to find. I do understand that you want to see
the actual record but I'm confused about the problem.
"The FHL only has church records on births and marriages to about 1876 on
Genline has the following birth, marriage, and death records for Malmöhus län in its SCB
This is a listing of the available birth, marriage, and death records for Malmöhus län in
the Family History Library Catalog.
Using the name of the parish only gets you to about 1860 and earlier for births,
marriages, and deaths in most parishes. Some parishes now have birth, marriage, and death
records in later years listed under the name of the parish but the extractions of birth,
marriage, and death records for all the parishes in a particular län (county) have been
available for a long time.
I wrote this a few months ago and it is probably archived in the list archives.
Many have problems trying to find the birth, marriage, and death records after about 1860
and think, incorrectly, that they don't exist but they do exist. The normal procedure
is to look under the name of the parish and there are still parish records after 1860
which are found under the parish name but in the case of births, marriages, and deaths in
1860 and later, you need to use a different set of records which are accessible under the
name of the county.
On Genline, choose SCB instead of the name of the parish (SCB is found under the name of
the county.) but those records only go to the mid-1890s on Genline. Read about those
Those records exist on microfilm until 1920. This is how to find them.
a) Go to http://www.familysearch.org
b). Look on the right side to find the Family History Library Catalog.
c). Choose the "Place Search".
d). Enter the Swedish län = county on the first line and ignore the second line.
e). Choose "Civil Registration".
f). Choose "utdrag ur ministerialböcker".
g). Choose the year.
h). Choose the type of record.(Births: Födde; Marriages: Vigde; Deaths: Döde)
i). Go to a Family History Center.
j) Order the film or films from any Family HIstory Center.
k). Search the film for your parish (which will be among all the other parishes in that
county) and make sure you also have the right type of record.
l). Repeat until you have found the records you need. (I usually do this at the Family
History Library in Salt Lake City since it takes less time than ordering one film after
another after another and waiting for the films to be shipped to the Family History
If the above is not what you need, please clarify what the problem is.
