Swedish records

Not sure what category to post it in.
There is a great website for researching Swedish ancestors called genline. It is a pay for time site, but well worth it.
There are church records, census records, and their census equivalent- household examinations.
The site is in English, but a little Swedish is required when looking at the records. They do provide a list of keywords that helps, but I still bought a small dictionary.
I believe the site has been purchased by ancestry.com, so we will have to see if the great value for money remains.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Carrington, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Bentham, Holloway, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Yorks, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.
