Introduction to Swedish Genealogy

SwedGen teaches Swedish Genealogy basics that will help you start finding your Swedish ancestry and decide what factors to consider. For example, once you know your relative’s church parish, what is the next step? They will also demonstrate a case study using Arkiv Digital.
