This database contains birth information for over 7.5 million individuals who died in Sweden between 1901 and 2006. The records include births from about 1800 to 2006. The birth information is taken from the database compiled by members of the Swedish Federation of Genealogical Associations, Sveriges Släktforskarförbund, and published under the name of Swedish Death Index, 1901-2006 (Sveriges Dödbok 1901-2009). The database was compiled using mainly parish and civil records. There are no family relationships mentioned in the data. The fields researchable on line with Ancestry are:
- Given Name
