Oregon and Washington: 3 Swedish Genealogical Workshops in September


DearREADERS,
Ol' Myrt here was thrilled to see Kathy Meade while at the Federation of Genealogical Conference in Springfield, Illinois earlier this month.  She is an experienced Swedish genealogy research instructor. Kathy writes:
DearMYRTLE,
Here is the information about the upcoming Swedish Genealogical Workshops in Oregon and Washington. I will be traveling with three genealogists from Sweden. Each workshop will be filled with lectures on Swedish research as well as opportunities for a limited number of persons to have individual consultations with one of the genealogists from Sweden. Here are two links with registration information:
 
Best regards,
