The DISBYT database contains 38,3 million records of Swedes who lived before 1908. 
Each record can represent one or more individuals and consists of info about name, parish and year for events such as birth, marriage and death. It also includes the name of the submitter.

If you have submitted info at least 1000 persons the last two years, you will be able to see a ancestor chart in four generations.

Disbyt-news
Due to extensive use of the Disbyt database, we have decided to limit the number of accesses to the database to 1000 accesses each day for each user. This limitation is made for safety reasons and for fair use reasons.

Source Quality Stars
As good news for the summer research, we have improved the DISBYT database. Quality in research is important. We therefore now will show how good the basis for the information is. You will see stars after the each note, which will mean the following:
-Only year exists
*Date exists
**Source reference exists
***Source reference with volume number exists
****Source reference with volume and page number exists

If there are no stars, the reason could be that the data was submitted a long time ago. We have also had som problems with missing info. If you resubmit your data, it will be correct the next time.
