The Dis Society is the Swedish Computer Genealogy Society. DIS is short fo Datorhjälp i släktforskningen, which means Computer support in genealogy. The Dis Society was founded in 1980, and is the world oldest computer genealogy society. Our concept is to provide genealogy and computer support to our members in cooperation with archives and other genealogical organizations.

We produce a genealogical software Disgen (in Swedish) and have genealogical databases as Disbyt and Dispos which support you in your family history research.

We have eight regional societies in Sweden and we publish a quarterly magazine called Diskulogen in Swedish. The head quarter is located in Gamla Linköping – the Old town of Linköping, where we also have a research center. In English, we publish the e-zine Rooted in Sweden.

The Dis Society is a member of  Sveriges Släktforskarförbund – the Federation of Genealogical Societies of Sweden.

DISBYT is a database where you can search for your ancestors. At the same time, you can make contact with the genealogists that researches the same people as you do.

The DISBYT database contains 31,7 million records of Swedes who lived before 1911. Each record consists of info about name, parish and year for events such as birth, marriage and death. It also includes the name of the submitter.

As a member in DIS, you can see data for one person at a time, and who has contributed with the data.

  • If you have sent data to Disbyt yourself, you can see one whole family at a time, and you can also follow the lineages with just a mouse click.
  • If you are not a member of DIS, you can search as a guest. You can then see data about one person at a time, but you cannot see the name of the contributor.
