The Soldier’s register is a national database freely available for all with an Internet
connection (Open Access). All registering is done on a none-profit base by associations
or private persons around Sweden. This registering is combined to the national register
to make it possible to search everything at once.
The database comprises The Younger Allotment System with soldiers enlisted between
1682 and 1901. The database is not complete and new soldiers are registered continuously
and new information is added about already register soldiers. Duplicates may occur
in the database but these will be removed with time as the data are continuously
processed by the local registers. At the local register there might be more information
about the soldier and the croft. Contact the local register for more information.
The contact information is available in the national database in the full record
of the soldier. The selection of fields in the database is limited by copyright
issues. The local register owns the copyright of their posts and the information
is protected by Swedish copyright law (upphovsrättslagen).
The main purpose with the registering is to register soldiers up to the
rank of corporal. Genealogists and local researchers contribute generously with
information about a soldier and his family. Information about the person who supplies
us with information is stored in the register. We are very grateful if you have
any information about the soldiers, their families or the crofts to contribute.
The Soldier’s register is supported by The National Swedish Museums of Military History and is
run by the Garrison Museum
