Swedish Genealogy Workshop

Friday, April 27, 2018 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Swedish Genealogy Workshop

Are you interested in researching your Swedish ancestors? The world of genealogy is changing quickly and new technologies have made it easier than ever to build your Swedish family tree.

Instructors Dee and Ray Keinow will cover the basics of Swedish genealogy through demonstrations using Swedish computer databases, internet research and the Swedish parish record databases such as Genline (now part of Ancestry.com International), Archives Digital, EmiWeb, etc. Participants will complete the workshop knowing the steps needed for successful genealogical research, the records used, how to access them, how to analyze the data found and how to continue with their own research. Queries from attendees may also be researched as time allows, so bring your questions. Your Swedish family tree awaits!

Please bring a bag lunch or plan to purchase one from FIKA, ASI’s café. The required textbook, Your Swedish Roots, can be purchased through the ASI Museum Store (612-870-3364); please purchase the textbook prior to the day of the workshop, as the Museum Store does not open until 10 a.m.
