LA i Uppsala - Informationsblad

Swedish Regional Archives in Uppsala *EXCELLENT* Information


Uppbyggnaden av en regional arkivorganisation under Riksarkivet inleddes vid 1800-talets slut. Det första landsarkivet öppnades 1899 i Vadstena. År 1903 inrättades landsarkiv även i Lund och Uppsala.

Landsarkivet inrymdes vid sin tillkomst i Uppsala slott. Lokalerna valdes av sparsamhetsskäl och tedde sig redan från början otidsenliga. De mest akuta förvaringsproblemen löstes efterhand genom skapandet av depåer på skilda håll i Uppsala. Först 1993 flyttade Landsarkivet till nya lokaler i Uppsala arkivcentrum, där hela den inre verksamheten nu är samlad. I byggnaden finns också en annan myndighet, nämligen Språk- och folkminnesinstitutet (SOFI).

with an abundance of helpful information. Also be sure to visit your local
LDS Family History Center. You can find them listed in the yellow pages
under Churches. The volunteers there are wonderful and will point you in
the right direction. There are four terrific books that I would recommend
which we have in our own library (these books can be found via your local
bookstore or library):

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Genealogy
by Christine Rose, CG, CGL, FASG & Kay Germain Ingalls, CGRS
ISBN 0-02-861947-1

Unpuzzling Your Past: A Basic Guide to Genealogy, 3rd Edition
by Emily Croom
ISBN 1-55870-396-9

Organizing Your Family History Search
by Sharon DeBartolo Carmack
ISBN 1-55870-511-2

For anyone who is new to the Internet, I would like to suggest my own book
which was written after teaching classes for my genealogy society and our
local Family History Center. The book began as a handout written for these
classes. It is meant to be a resource for anyone who is new to the Internet
and also has many tips & tricks useful for people who have been online for
a while as well.

The Kven Culture: the Finnish minority

"One of the oldest and most important areas of Kven culture is the municipality of Nordreisa in Northern Troms where the valley of the Reisa river, Reisadalen (Raisinvankka), is located.

There are many places which still preserve their old names in the Kven language and local people are proud of their Kven background.
Some old Kven people like Håkon Moilanen still live in the Reisadalen.

Mr Aimo Kalinin, who lives in Storslett (Hansinkenttä), is a teacher in the Sørkjosen (Rässikäinen) School and Former Chairman of the Finland Association in Northern Troms.
He knows personally the Kven People living in Reisadalen.

The atmosphere in Nordreisa is very enthusiastic about the Kven culture and the local people are looking forward to a new era of Kven culture as most of them have Kven ancestors. "

Rebet strammer i Randers
18. juli 2004

Danmarks arvesølv
Den jyske erhvervsmand Keld Toft Lauritsen satsede for fem år siden en stor gevinst på den snart 164 år gamle virksomhed Randers Reb - nu må han slås for at redde både formuen og virksomheden.
22. juni 2004

Randers' borgmester, Michael Aastrup Jensen (V), ærgrer sig over, at Randers Reb mandag gik i betalingsstandsning. Men for byen som sådan er det potentielle tab af 80 arbejdspladser overskueligt, mener han.
22. juni 2004

Leverandørernes og bankernes tålmodighed med Randers Reb er sluppet op. Selskabet vil under en betalingsstandsning søge rekonstruktion eller salg.
21. juni 2004

Mens de toneangivende indeks faldt i Europa, lå KFX-indekset højere efter mandagens handel. Danisco bidrog med dagens største kurshop. Københavns Lufthavne vendte tilbage til hovedindekset.
21. juni 2004

Med betalingsstandsningen i Randers Reb mandag står 163 års dansk erhvervshistorie efter en række magre år på kanten af konkurs, og omkring 200 arbejdspladser er i farezonen. Samtidig er det historien om, at massiv udflytning af arbejdspladser til Litauen ikke har været nok til at rette en virksomhed op, hvor faldende omsætning, løbske it-udgifter og rod i lagerstyringen har trukket den ned.

  • Notes
  • use find on page to navigate and spell check
  • to spell check names use Ancestry - a freebie
  • Wild card help page from Ancestry but there must be at least 3 characters before any wildcard
  • use Soundex too

The wildcard query resulted in too many matches.

Wildcards are special symbols which are used in place of letters or numbers. They can be used to match distinct but similar words. An asterisk "*" replaces zero or more characters, and a question mark "?" replaces exactly one character. For example, a search for "fran*" will return matches on words like "Fran," "Franny," or "Frank." A search for "Johns?n" matches "Johnson" and "Johnsen," but not "Johnston."

Here are some suggestions on how you can better use wildcards to complete your search:

  • Use more characters before the wildcard. For example, use Able* instead of Abl*.
    There must be at least 3 characters before any wildcard.
  • Specify both a first and last name or a partial first and last name.
  • Try using the single-character wildcard "?" rather than the multiple-character wildcard "*".
    (e.g., using "Hans?n" matches both "Hansen" and "Hanson" rather than using "Hans*").
