I have been receiving some activities updates from the Swedish American Museum in Chicago, IL recently. Some of the activities may be specifically related to genealogical events or programs. Other events may have a historical context as it applies to Swedish history and ancestry. Some events may be cultural.
I thought I would share with you a recent issue of the May 2014 Newsletter called the Cirkular that I received from the Swedish American Museum.
The museum itself is located at 5211 North Clark Street in Chicago, IL. The phone number for the museum is 773-728-8111.
It actually looks like there is plenty to do if you are interested in discovering more about Swedish history, culture and ancestry.
Go to the following link and take a peek at all that you could be doing during May 2014 at the Swedish American Museum:
There is a genealogy program scheduled for Saturday May 24, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 12 Noon at the Museum. The title of the program is “Rune Stones and Research”. This program is intended for existing members of the Nordic Family Genealogy Center. It does not appear to be open to the public or to non-members of the society. From their website, here is a description of the program:
GENEALOGY SESSION: RUNE STONES AND RESEARCH
Saturday, May 24, 10 a.m.
Nordic Family Genealogy Center at the Swedish American Museum will host a genealogy session on Saturday, May 24 from 10 a.m. to noon. Come hear about “Cracking the Runic Code: What were the Vikings thinking?” and spend some time afterwards doing your own research. This genealogy session is for Nordic Family Genealogy Center members only. RSVPs encouraged and can be made via email.
See what interests you. Make a connection with the society if you are digging deep into your Swedish roots. Take at look at all of the cultural doings going on at the Museum during the month of May 2014.
