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 February 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 February 2014 at the Swedish American Museum:
There is a genealogy program scheduled for Saturday February 22, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 12 Noon at the Museum. The title of the program is “Members Share Their Sweden Stories”. From their website, here is a description of the program:
Saturday, Feb. 22, 10 a.m. – noon
Many people like to travel and genealogists are no exception. After their first trip to Sweden, they often forego the usual tourist haunts such as Gamla Stan, the Vasa Museum and the Göta Canal. Instead, genealogists head to the area where their ancestors lived. Perhaps they spend time with newly found relatives or visit the church where their grandparents were married. Come hear their stories on Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Nordic Family Genealogy Center at the Swedish American Museum. Thinking of retracing your roots to Sweden? This would be a great session for you to come to and collect tips for planning your own journey. You may email or call the Museum at 773.728.8111 and leave a message for the Genealogy Center volunteer with any questions.
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 February 2014.
