I am currently sitting at the main library of Linköping, Sweden, and going through microfilm. From October 1 1981 to December 31, 1996, the title Östgöten exists, before that, the title Folkbladet Östgöten exists from January 2, 1979 to September 30, 1981. I know (being a newspaper deliverer) that there currently is a paper called Folkbladet published whose main area is Norrköping (neighbor city/town of Linköping) that among newspaper distributors has the abreviation FÖ, standing for Folkbladet Östergötland (or something similar). I am open to the possibility that this might be the same newspaper (but I can be totally mistaken). Karl MAN (talk) 19:27, 3 November 2015 (CET)

After having looked closer at the microfilm, it appears that ÖStgöten was an edition of Folkbladet, whose main edition was the Norrköping edition, there was also a Finspång edition. Folkbladet Norrköping was apparently founded in 1905, while Östgöten was founded in 1874 (or something close to that). According to the Swedish wikipedia article they have been co-produced since the 1960s. The title is now only Folkbladet. I put up a discussion of some aspect of this situation at the Bandar Village.
