Hi -

You might find this site useful:

http://www.ddss.nu/english/default.aspx

It has free transcriptions of birth, marriage and death records for parishes in Halland, Blekinge, Malmöhus and Kristianstad counties. It's a work in progress, so availability varies, but the price can't be beat.

As far as paid subscription services go, in addition to Genline there are also SVAR (http://www.svar.ra.se) and Arkiv Digital (http://www.arkivdigital.se/). Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages. The quality of Arkiv Digital's images is fantastic, but their coverage of records at present is limited to about half of Sweden's counties. SVAR has more recent records in some cases than the others, but you will have to check each to see what is available for the parishes and time frame you are interested in.

Hope this helps -
