Swedish Genealogy Weekend: Individual Research Sessions

Sunday, May 13, 2018 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

Individual Research Sessions*

As part of Swedish Genealogy Weekend, SwedGen will also conduct individual research help in 30 minute sessions. In these private sessions, registrants will meet one-on-one with a researcher who can provide help with research questions, provide ideas for additional resources, and give insight into how to get in touch with living relatives in Sweden. Sessions MUST be scheduled and paid for in advance. 

*To participate in the individual sessions, you must have already begun your genealogy research. If you are looking for Swedish relatives, please bring everything you have found in U.S. records.

To register, please call Liz Stopka at 612-870-3372
