If you have ever wanted to attend a Fika session, this is your chance to see how it goes. With Zoom, we will get a close look at how Kjell finds things for SGSC members in Swedish Records. We will also see how he launches members on their Swedish research journey or helps them break through a brick wall. He is one of the best at Swedish Genealogy and those of us who have attended a Fika session have benefited greatly. (SGSC Research Sessions are held at the Fika Coffee Shop in Parker and are free for members).
