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 January 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 and ancestry.
Go to the following link and take a peek at all that you could be doing during January 2014 at the Swedish American Museum:
There is a genealogy program scheduled for Saturday January 25, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 12 Noon at the Museum. The title of the program is “Ellis Island Film Screening”. From their website, here is a description of the program:
On Saturday, Jan. 25, the Nordic Family Genealogy Center at the Swedish American Museum will host a genealogy session focused on Ellis Island. From 1892 to 1954, more than 12 million people were pushed and pulled through the often humiliating bureaucracy of Ellis Island on their way to becoming Americans. Come hear their story at this special video screening to be followed by a discussion on how our own ancestors came to America. You may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Museum at 773.728.8111.
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 January 2014.
