Bouppteckning - Estate and Inventory - Probate


In Sweden when someone dies and has something left we are doing bouppteckning (eng Estate inventory/ Probate). This document needs to be done 3 months after the person has died. In this document you will see children of the person who died and also what she left which is really detailed and gives an indication how they lived. Older Estate and Inventories are more detailed....

"Det ålåg efterlevande man, hustru eller andra arvingar att uppteckna all egendom som fanns vid dödstillfället. Uppteckningen skulle ske inom tre månader efter dödsfallet och avskrift inlämnas till domstolen (häradsrätt eller rådhusrätt). I bouppteckningen finns förutom information om arvingars namn och bostadsort detaljerade uppgifter om boets fasta egendom och lösöre liksom fordringar och skulder. "

In 1734 we got a law in Sweden where it was stated that you needed to do a bouppteckning when someone died. One reason for that was that some part of what was left should be paid to the goverment (det allmänna).

Arkiv Digital and SVAR has some bouppteckningar but you can also order them
see below

In the Archives they are normally in serie FII  A good site to learn more about bouppteckningar is this genealogy-resources page

How to order a Bouppteckning


See http://www.ssa.stockholm.se/Bestall/Bouppteckningar/

Good if you know

Namn - Name
Födelsedatum - Year of birth
Dödsdatum - Death date
Dödsort - Place of death

If the person died before 1 jul 2001 then it is Riksarkivet

After 1 jul 2001 then it is skatteverket (eng. IRS)

2 weeks after ordered I got a PDF for the price of 4 Skr = 50p
But you can set a limit when you order. I think the price is 300 Skr if they have to search in the books....

This is from my fathers mothers mother and is the first place where I find all her children with wifes. She didn't own so much so there was no interesting details.

From 1874 found in Arkiv Digital as scanned a very detailed Bouppteckning after Bengt Hjorth
