Introduction to Swedish Genealogy  (Classes)
1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
This class will be held in person at IGS only.
The class covers examples of the types of records you may find in Sweden.  A word list is provided to help read the Swedish documents.  There are also examples of writing.  Swedish last name practices will be covered. Records can be found in Ancestry, Family Search and Arkivdigital.
 
Parish household examination records from the late 1600's to 1894 provide a yearly record of where a person lived and who else lived in the household.  In addition to household examinations, records were made of christenings, marriages, and deaths and burials.  Swedish records are in parish record books, so any information about where the family lived in Sweden is very helpful. Examples of Estate Records will be covered.
 
Donna will also try to answer questions from the class.  It will help if participants have gathered American records about their Swedish emigrant, especially passenger lists or applications for U.S. citizenship although these are not absolutely necessary.  These records give clues to where to look for parish records and estate inventories.  Also talk to older relatives to find out where in Sweden ancestors came from.  Any information to help find the parish is helpful.
