Swedish American Genealogist

From: Elisabeth Thorsell
DearMYRTLE,
Just read your blog on paid newsletters, and thought you might be interested in seeing mine. It is in Swedish and has been going for about 9 years. Not a huge number of subscribers, but very faithful. As soon as I mention that I might stop doing this, the readers come with nice, cheering e-mails, and I go on for another year. I used to do 10 issues/ year, but have now cut down to 6, which still keeps me busy ( I do a lot other things too).

Anyway, I had a very nice time in Salt Lake City in October, and hope to be back again. This year the SAG Workshop will take place 18-25 September 2011, as our usual week in late October was already booked full at the Plaza. The only requirement to take part of our Workshop is to be a subscriber to SAG, and there is more information on my web site and on SAG's Facebook page.

All the best for the New Year to you and your husband!

DearELISABETH,
It is always a pleasure to spotlight your work. Every  year, I hear from my DearREADERS who have had the opportunity to attend your annual SAG Workshops in Salt Lake City at the Family History Library. That is quite a trip for you to come all the way from Sweden. However, your experience and insight are invaluable to researchers with Swedish roots.

I can only imagine how much time you spend on each issue of your SAG newsletter. I just revamped my 2011 January Organization Checklist. It took me 4 hours for 15 pages, though most of the text merely had to be updated.

There are so many exciting things happening in the world of genealogy. I appreciate your keeping us up to date on Swedish research.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     :)
DearMYRTLE,
Your friend in genealogy.
