The Centre for Local History

The Centre for Local History was established in March 1988 and is, what is termed, a working unit within Linköping University. The aim of the Centre is to support and develop research on local history and education by bringing about co-operation between professional researchers, instructors, school, teachers and the general public. The Centre for Local History is also building up a historic database with computerized parish records which is used in several research projects at the univeristy.

The Aim of the Centre:

  • to assume responsibility for and prepare the demographic material about the inhabitants of Östergötland, received from the Demographic Database in Umeå for research and local use in Östergötland,
  • to facilitate and promote the use of this material in cultural life, schools, higher education and research,
  • to co-ordinate and support research projects of local history character in the county of Östergötland,
  • to support and develop co-operation between the long-term accumulation of knowledge and the development of methods in the local history and demographic fields, particularly in regard to areas of an interdiciplinary character,
  • to provide information about research within the area of local history,
  • to take the initiative in co-ordinating education in local history and
