Project description

Assign profiles to the this project where birthplace has been specified to the parish of Edsleskog and year of birth is earlier than 1786.

Since Edsleskog birth records begins in 1786, there is no way to verify data in household examinations about people born in the parish earlier than 1786.

However, the main source for profiles in this project are household examination records which sometimes give away quite detailed birthplace info for people born before 1786. Remember that info from household examinations in the 18th century quite often are contradictory and unreliable.
