Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study has been to examine if regional differences in the organization of poor relief and the spreading of poverty exist in the two near situated parishes Fryksände and Vitsand during the period 1863-1903 and in case larger differences exist, try to explain them. The main sources I have used for research are the local government minutes and BiSOS. I have examined the spreading of poverty during the period 1874-1903 with help of BiSOS. The researches by the historians Olle Lundsjö, Henrik Olsson and Anders Persson showed that larger regional differences in the organization of poor relief and the spreading of poverty existed in Sweden. My hypothesis has been that regional differences in the organization of poor relief and the spreading of poverty existed in the two near situated parishes Fryksände and Vitsand. In some cases the hypothesis did correspond. The organization of poor relief was on the whole similar in the two parishes, but Fryksände had a bigger poor-house, while the poor people in Vitsand got their poor relief through walking from house to house. It was the women and the children who got most help in the two parishes and poor relief was refused for similar reasons in Fryksände and Vitsand. The spreading of poverty was for the most larger in Fryksände during the period 1874-1903. The explanation to Fryksändes larger poverty was a combination of that the people in Vitsand sold their forest and got money, larger removal of poor in Vitsand and a better organization of poor relief and that their neighbour Fryksände had bigger problem with beggars.
