The Military Archives keep records from agencies belonging to the Swedish Ministry of Defense and from individuals as well as associations connected to the military. The National Archival Database (NAD) contains information on the fonds of the Military Achives and very often inventories (container lists) which otherwise can be found in the Reference room. The material most often used in genealogical research is available on microfiche.
Our special pride is the unique collection of handpainted maps and plans concerning many parts of the world but especially Sweden, Finland and Germany. Registers to our map collections, including some images, can be found at:
