Can't find existing tags to consider for household records in Sweden.

+1 vote

As you can see I attempted and household records got incorrectly added as 2 separate things.  Did I just add the others?

The first time you use a reference in a profile, instead of just <ref> at the beginning, start it with <ref name="some short name">.  Then next time you want to use it, you need only type <ref name="some short name" />. (Notice the slash at the end.)

Riksarkivet SVAR seems to be down still, after their planned maintenance yesterday evening, or I would  have used your example.

But this is what I do:

<ref>Norra Sandsjö kyrkoarkiv, Husförhörslängder, SE/VALA/00265/A I/6 (1815-1824), [ bildid: C0022675_00045] Riksarkivet SVAR</ref>

It's from

On the SVAR page, in the info panel to the right there are little icons for copying the citation, the image number and the link. I use two of these. I first copy the citation: "Norra Sandsjö kyrkoarkiv, Husförhörslängder, SE/VALA/00265/A I/6 (1815-1824), bildid: C0022675_00045" and paste it in between the <ref> <r/ef>

Then I copy the link "" and paste it in before the "bildid: C0022675_00045" part of the citation, leaving a space between and surrounding it with single brackets: [ bildid: C0022675_00045] which makes the *bildid* bit a link to the image it names.

I usually type in Riksarkivet SVAR after the citation, sometimes even adding (free of charge) - since it wasn't always.

There are more elaborate ways of doing this, I'm sure.

(Not sure how this will come through the G2G editor)
