Want to learn how to begin to trace your Swedish heritage or learn some new techniques in breaking down those brick walls in your Swedish research? Then, you should try to attend one of the SwedGen Road Tour 2011 Research Days occurring in September. The SwedGen Road Tour begins on September 10th and you still have time to register for one of the events and there are still a few slots available for private consultations at each destination.
Four Swedish genealogists are touring the United States for the sole purpose of helping Swedish-Americans learn more about their heritage. The group has been very successful in helping many individuals get started with their research as well as breaking down many brick walls on past trips and they are continuing the tradition with SwedGen 2011.
This year the group will be leading Research Workshops in Chicago, Rock Island, Denver and Salt Lake City in September. The workshops will include presentations and demonstrations on how to use the various resources for Swedish genealogical and historical research. Click here to see the presentation schedule for each event.
This year three representatives from Lantmäteriet, the Swedish mapping and land registration authority, will also be present at the SwedGen events in Chicago and
Rock Island. One of the four Swedish genealogists will represent Lantmäteriet in Denver and Salt Lake City and give a presentation on historical maps at those locations. Lantmäteriet will be an exhibitor at the Federation of Genealogical Society Conference in Springfield, IL from September 7th to the 10th.
Below you will find information for each event including date, location and registration links. The registration procedures do vary by place and pre-registration is required in Chicago, Rock Island and Denver. At each place, individual consultations will be available to the first 32 persons who sign up for a one-on-one session and submit a query form. Queries will not be accepted after September 1st.
