Here is the September 2013 newsletter I received from the Swedish American Museum:
The newsletter 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 newsletter notes that there will be a genealogy program on Saturday, September 28, 2013 that will take place between 10 AM to Noon.
Here is the text description from the newsletter about this genealogy program:
Saturday, Sept. 28, 10 a.m. – noon
The Nordic Family Genealogy Center at the Swedish American Museum will host a genealogy session led by Marsha Peterson-Maass on “The Most Helpful Genealogical Tools You’ve Never Used.” It is a great session for anyone interested in genealogical research-not just those with Scandinavian roots. Cost is free for Nordic Family Genealogy Center members; non-members pay $10. Reservations appreciated. Email Genealogy@samac.org or call the Museum at 773.728.8111 with any questions.”
The Swedish American Museum is very active in all things Swedish, including genealogy.
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 newsletter for the many and varied programs and events being offered by the museum during September 2013.
