Ytterlännäs is a parish in the Diocese of Härnösand in Västernorrland County, Sweden. Ytterlännäs parish contains Sweden's oldest continuous choir.


Ytterlännäs parish, in the province of Ångermanland, belonged to the Archdiocese of Uppsala in the Middle Ages, but has been part of the Diocese of Härnösand since the diocese's formation in 1647. The two churches of the parish, the old one from the early 13th century, and the new one, built from 1848 to 1854, are located between the communities of Nyland and Bollstabruk, within Kramfors Municipality.[1]

The Ytterlännäs Old Church dates from the 13th century and features medieval vaults, wall-paintings and wooden sculptures. It has baroque furnishings that include two galleries. The Ytterlännäs Madonna is an example of the work from the Hälsingland workshop of Haaken Gulleson. The church is in an excellent state of preservation from being unused since 1854.[1]

The Ytterlännäs New Church was completed in 1854 and is an example of the Tegnér barn style.

1 Anton Julius Winblad I.jpg Anton Julius Winblad(1828–1901) 1851 to 1866 He was the first schoolteacher, choir leader, and church organist at Ytterlännäs from 1851 to 1866. He was born on October 8, 1828 in Stockholm. Anton was born on October 8, 1828 in Stockholm, Sweden to Lars Magnus Vingblad (1797-?), a carpenter journeyman; and Brita Christina Ökneberg (1799-?). Anton was baptized on October 11, 1828 in Stockholm at Maria Magdalena Church (Mariakyrkan). By 1851 Anton was the primary school teacher and he was leading the church choir in Ytterlännäs, Sweden. He married Margareta Kristina Höglund (1819–1854) aka Greta Höglund, on June 24, 1852 in Högsjö. On April 17, 1853: Antonette Kristina Winblad I (1853); and Johanna Maria Winblad (1853), their twin daughters were born. Johanna died on June 30, 1853; and Antonette died on July 18, 1853. On June 11, 1854 their third child, Antoinette Kristina Winblad II (1854-after1900) was born. Margareta Höglund, his wife, died in childbirth on June 11, 1854 giving birth to Antonette Kristina Winblad II. After his wife's death Anton traveled to Härnösand to take the exam to be certified as an organist. Each teacher was now required to be the church organist. When Anton returned from Härnösand, he began a courtship of Elsa Maria Elisabeth Näslund (1829–1907). Elsa's father was Israel Israelsson Näslund III (1796–1858) the reverend of Ytterlännäs. Anton and Elsa married on August 7, 1855 in Ytterlännäs. In 1858 grade 1 and 2 became "småskola" and children began school at the age of seven. On January 24, 1866 Anton moved the family to the "prästbordet" (church house), Anundsjö, Västernorrland, Sweden and it appears that Johan, his first born son, didn't move with the family. Johan would have been in a boarding school in Härnösand. Anton appears in the 1890 Sweden census working as a school teacher and living in Anundsjö with his wife and his two unmarried children: Antonette Kristina Winblad from his first marriage; and Frideborg Winblad. In 1900 the family was living in the prästbordet, and the only child still living at home was Antonette Kristina Winblad II. Frideborg was living and working in Härnösand, as a teacher. Anton died on October 30, 1901 in Anundsjö, Sweden.[1]
