MyHeritage Adds 32 Million Genealogy Records From Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark
Posted by Diane

Genealogy website MyHeritage has launched a major initiative in the Nordic countries with more than 32 million records from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, plus dedicated social media channels. The records are accessible with a MyHeritage data subscription ($9.95 per month, billed annually).

The site also is investing millions of dollars and has agreements in place to digitize more Nordic content and add it over the next few years.

The new Nordic historical record collections comprise birth, death, marriage, baptismal and others, covering more than 90 million names. Here's a country-by-country breakdown of the new collections (click each country name to search MyHeritage records of that country):
  • Sweden: 11 million records with 31 million names, including baptism documents dating back to 1611, marriage documents dating back to 1630 and burial documents dating back to 1649
  • Norway: 10 million records with 30 million names, including baptism documents dating back to 1634, marriage documents dating back to 1660, burial documents dating back to 1666, and the Norwegian national census of 1875
  • Denmark: 5.5 million records with 14 million names, including baptism documents dating back to 1618, marriage documents dating back to 1635 and burial documents dating back to 1640
  • Finland: 5.5 million records with 16 million names. These collections include baptism documents dating back to 1657, marriage documents dating back to 1682 and burial documents dating back to 1725
MyHeritage, which has more than 470,000 registered users in Sweden, 350,000 in Norway, 300,000 in Denmark, and 200,000 in Finland, has also launched a blog, Facebook account and Twitter account dedicated to each country. You can access them from this MyHeritage blog post

Those users have added more than 70 million profiles in 730,000 family trees on MyHeritage.

Much, if not all of the new MyHeritage Nordic content, appears to be freely available at FamilySearch.org. For instance, compare the MyHeritage Norwegian databases (http://www.myheritage.com/research/category-Norway/norway) to the free FamilySearch databases (https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list#page=1&countryId=1927171).

Hi, DKL, thank you for the tip and the links for readers. MyHeritage and FamilySearch agreed a couple of months back on a data exchange, so we'll likely see more FamilySearch content appearing on the site.
