The Demographical Database for Southern Sweden (DDSS) is a free website for Swedish records. “The history of the DDSS Project, (Demographic Database Southern Sweden) began in 1996. Its predecessor, SDD, (Scania Demographic Database) was initiated in 1983.” This free Swedish database contains over 1 million records and over 300 photographed churches!

The longterm goal of the Demographical Database for Southern Sweden is to have all birth, marriage, and death records from Skåne, Blekinge, and Halland registered and free to search on the internet.

“The DDSS consists of three separate databases containing information extracted from the original Swedish parish church records of births and baptisms, weddings, deaths and burials. Each of these sets of records constitutes a separate database. It is important to know that the Swedish parishes were territorial and included every person living in the area. The databases do not cover the whole of Sweden, being limited to the counties of Skåne and Blekinge. So far only a small number of the records in the approximately 400 parishes in Skåne and Blekinge have been processed (see list of parishes for each database). However, the database is still increasing and new parishes are being added to the databases several times a year.”
