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 December 2013 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 and ancestry.
There is a genealogy Holiday Program scheduled for Saturday, December 21, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The title of the session is “Fika and Swedish Christmas Traditions”. Quoting from the newsletter, participants on this day can expect the following:
GENEALOGY SESSION: FIKA AND SWEDISH CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS
Saturday, Dec.21, 10 a.m. – noon
Celebrate the holidays with the Nordic Family Genealogy Center’s final genealogy session for 2013. This session is intended for Nordic Family Genealogy Center members only. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Museum at 773.728.8111 and leave a message for the Genealogy Center volunteer, if you have any questions or would like to join.
Please note that this Holiday Program is intended for members only of the Nordic Family Genealogy Center. You can certainly take the opportunity to become a member now allowing you to participate in this special Holiday program.
