Death Cards 

You will find the death cards with the entry: avlidna och dödförklarade. These cards are organized alphabetically for the entire city of Stockholm. You do not need to know the parish where the person lived. These records are helpful for locating the parish in Stockholm where the person died and then locating the original death record. The info box will tell you the alphabet range for each book. In the above example the book includes the A’s from the beginning to G. Alberg. However, the sorting is by phonetic spelling. For example both Carlsson’s and Karlsson’s are included in the K’s. 

On the front side, you will find the deceased person’s death date, birth date and birth place. On the backside of the card you will find the address where the person lived at the time of his death. 

Below is an example of a death card for Fredrik Alberg: 



The above record is the front side of the card which shows his death date as the 12th of April 1934. His occupation is timmerman or carpenter. He was born on the 27th of September 1858 in the parish of Melby (Stora Melby) in Älvsborg county. He was married. The letter “g” is an abbreviation for gift which means married

Above is the back side of the card which shows Fredrik Alberg’s address and the parish where you can find his death record. 

You will find his death record in the parish, Storkyrkoförsamlingen in Stockholm. You will find the death record at the following reference in the ArkivDigital online library: Storkyrkoförsamlingen FIa:13 (1930-1942) Image 890 / page 85 (AID: v273994.b890.s85, NAD: SE/SSA/0016) 

Moving Cards 

You will find the moving cards in the same archive with the entry, utflyttade. These cards are organized alphabetically for the entire city of Stockholm. You do not need to know the parish where the person lived. The info box will tell you the alphabet range for each book. Again the sorting is by phonetic spelling. When you highlight a book, the info box will show the starting and ending names for the book.
