In 1993 a project was begun in the town of Duved in the Swedish county of Jämtland. Its purpose was to look at the possibilities of digitalizing Sweden's historical church records and make them available to the general public via the most up to date information technology, and hence the birth of our company Genline AB in 1995.
During the 50’s and 60’s The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were in Sweden to film church books that are kept at The Swedish National Archives (Riksarkivet). The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints left one set of microfilms with The Swedish National Archives. Genline has bought a copy of the microfilms from The Swedish National Archives in order to produce our Swedish Church Records archive. The microfilms contain information from 1500-1860. Some information from 1860-1900 is from Statistics Sweden (SCB).
In our service development, Genline has used the expertise of various large Swedish corporations within those fields in which we work. 1997 and 1998 saw the addition of highly trained colleagues to Genline's payroll.
From that point on, development, systemization, and programming have all been done by Genline staff. Genline's operations are located in the Globen area of metropolitan Stockholm.
Global communication and the new infrastructures being built by an ever-expanding information, create the forum for companies that creates content exclusively for the Internet.
Genline is one of those companies!
