Why can't I see the submitter's number?
You have to be a member of DIS
- Computer Genealogy Society of Sweden and you have to order a password. See the link
How do I find out who the submitter is?
Click on the submitter's number (the red link) and you will get name,
address and hopefully an e-mail address. If your browser is connected to
your e-mail program, you may send a letter at once.
The password doesn't work
1. If you enter an incorrect user name or password, you will get an 'Authorization
required' message. User name and password consist of small letters and digits.
All characters shall be written without spaces. If you are asked to enter
a 'resource', you don't need to fill out that.
2. If you don't have a
password and is a member or DIS already, you order it by filling out the form at
the Password page. It you are not a member of DIS society you can join DIS online.
You will then automatically receive the password.
3. If you submit data to the DISBYT
database, you will get back a file with
search results. In the end of that file called Annnnn.TXT, ( nnnnn is your
membershipnumber) you will find a new
user name and password with better access to the DISBYT database, so you
may climb the family trees.
I have submitted data to DISBYT, but I don't find my own data.
The database on the Internet is updated approximately once a month.
Why is my address incorrect?
The names and addresses are updated once a month from the
DIS membership roll. If your address is incorrect, you should report your
new address to DIS. You may use the Password form and please mention that
you want to change your address. E-mail addresses and URL's are also welcome.
Why can't I find Kathy
The most common names are standardized to modern Swedish spelling. Even some
American names are changed to the Swedish corresponding names Although the database is supposedly standardized, there may
be some names with alternate spelling. If you are unsure of the spelling
you may use wild card characters, ? for a single letter and * for any number
Why can't I find the
Surenames not ending with -sson or -sdotter are not standardized. You must
yourself find out the corresponding Swedish name. In this case it´s the
same as Sjöberg or Sjöborg.
