Have Swedish ancestors? Count yourself lucky – the records are amazing. Our Swedish ancestors and their Nordic neighbors (those from Norway, Denmark, and Finland) left amazing records. These records can reveal incredible genealogical and historical discoveries. This session will focus on unique aspects of Swedish research and include some comparisons with what is available in Norway, Denmark, and Finland. We will learn how to find and use online Swedish and other Nordic records at MyHeritage.com and at other digital archives and repositories.
