The counties were divided into smaller areas called Fögderi which often matched the boundaries of the Härad. A Fögderi was an administrative geographical area with the primary purpose of tax collection and law enforcement. Each Fögderi had an appointed High Bailiff (Kronofogde) and a Deputy Clerk (Häradsskrivare.)&nbsp;The [[Swedish_Kronofogdedistrikt|Kronofogde]] was responsible for gathering funds for the government by collecting taxes, fines, and fees. The Häradsskrivaren was subordinate to the Kronofogden. His responsibilities included creating the mantals tax record and the real estate tax record (jordebok) for the Fögderi. These taxes were the foundation to the national tax base. Given this, it is really important to know what Fögderi your ancestors lived in to find them in the tax records.
