About the web site
At our web site you can, for example, find the following:

  • ”Kinnevedsfolk” is a compilation from the church books of almost every person who lived here between 1713 and 1965, their families and what happened to them. The material is diveded into pdf files according to at which place the persons lived. Look at the contents board in the pdf file ”Inledning” to find the place you´re looking for. There is also a register of the persons with a page reference.
  • In ”Födda” = born, and ”Döda” = dead, you´ll find plain transcripts from the church books.
  • At ”Våra grannar” = our neighbours, you´ll find the same as ”Kinnevedsfolk” for our neighbour parishes Brismene, Luttra and Vårkumla.
  • ”Gravstensinventering” is about the church yards of Kinneved, Brismene and Vårkumla with photos of all tomb stones and information about the buried.
  • ”Skolfoton” = school pictures, and ”Konfirmationsfoton = confirmation pictures. Here you´ll find photos of classes from about 1895 to 1975.
  • ”Program” = calender. Here we write about the activities we´ve planned for the year.
