Sök på gravsatta i Stockholm

Researchers with Swedish ancestry will want to check out a brand-new website called Sök på gravsatta i Stockholm—which is probably not as unintelligible as it appears. The site has information on half a million graves in Stockholm's eleven public cemeteries. Even someone with no knowledge of Swedish should be able to use the search engine ("Förnamn" and "Efternamn" are self-explanatory; for the other words, use your imagination or an online dictionary). In case you're ever passing through Stockholm and want to pay a visit, each search result comes with a map showing where the grave is located.
