The main website for the Swedish American Museum is:
The update highlights many of the upcoming programs and events that will be occurring at the Swedish American Museum. There are many programs that are more cultural in nature than genealogical. But if you are doing Swedish genealogical research, these cultural events are still important to you.
The museum does present genealogy programs. The one mentioned in this update notes that there will be a genealogy program on Saturday, August 24, 2013 that will take place at the Swedish American Museum from 10 AM to 12 Noon.
Here is the text description from the update about this genealogy program:
The Nordic Family Genealogy Center at the Swedish American Museum will host a genealogy session on viking women led by Dr. James Borg.

If you have Swedish ancestral connections, you want to make a connection with the Swedish American Museum located in Chicago, IL to see what resources they have that can help in your own Swedish research.
Look through the update for the many and varied programs and events being offered by the museum during August 2013.
