Transcriptions of the Bellö ministerial books (Church records)

I have tranfered the content of the Bellö church books into MS Excel.
I have now repacked this into html tables for web publishing.
At the time I have finished the birth record (födelseboken) until 1850, the marriage record (vigselbok) until 1851 and the death/burial record (dödboken) until 1851. I will make more material available as it is finished. This may take some time as I try to be careful and identify each person as I write the data down. I also note the godparents (dopvittne) for each child.

Jump to the transcriptions for Edshult, Ingatorp, Hult, Hässleby or Höreda.

If you (in tables) click on the buttons with the label "Liten/Small text" and "Stor/Large text" you can change the presentation for your own taste i.e. good readability or a better overview (smaller text).

New! Searchable tables. Now it is easier to search through my tables with transcriptions. Read more about the filter possibilities here.

In some places I have added information I obtained from studying other documents and other pages. As these are my conclusions and not in the actual record, I originally made these notes for my own use. But, I still think it is useful to keep them, for the casual reader, instead of removing it. Therefore I have marked such parts with pink text that indicates that this info has to be used with care.

Futher reading:
For those curious to learn more about swedish customs in past times I would recommend that you visit Ingela Martenius homepage and reads her excellent articles about swedish ethnology. It includes births, weddings and deaths, but also other aspects of swedish lives, like food and name giving practices.
Here is another interesting reading by Ingela about swedish housing and living.
Hans Högman has a list of translation for names of deceases and other genealogy words.
