We are closed on holidays including Midsummer's Eve, Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and the following days:
The reading room is not open in the evenings during the weeks around Christmas and New Year's (weeks no 1, 51 and 52).
In the reading room, 64 seats are available for visitors. Some seats are equipped with computers and some with microfiche readers. You do not have to reserve a seat in advance.
Visitors can use microfiche and databases at any time during opening hours. To study original archival documents, you need to fill in a special order form. The order forms are collected half-hourly between 9.15 and 15.00, and the documents are delivered at your desk in the reading room within 15 minutes. (The exception is Saturdays, when no orders for documents are collected.)
In Sweden, access to public records is free. Some documents may however be classified, primarily for reasons of personal integrity.
The Regional State Archives in Uppsala keep records from regional and local civil service authorities in the counties of Uppsala, Södermanland, Örebro, Västmanland, and Dalarna. The National Archival Database contains information about our holdings, as well as the holdings of other regional archives and the National Archives.
Parish records are available on computers and on microfiche from the 17th century to around 1940. These records constitute the main source of genealogical information in Sweden. They include household examination rolls and records of birth, marriage, death, and migration.
Local court records include the proceedings from court sessions, estate inventories, deeds of property, and mortgage transactions. Other records at the Regional Archives are those of county governors, local tax clerks, police authorities, secondary schools, and many more.
Research visits at the Regional State Archives are free of charge. Simple inquiries by mail or e-mail are also free. Inquiries that demand research by the staff are subject to a fee. The fee is SEK 125 per 15 minutes. The time assigned for an inquiry is normally limited to one hour.
Most documents can be photocopied, subject to the condition of the original. The price per copy, or printout from microfiche, is SEK 4 (size A4).
