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 September 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.
You can reach the general website for the Swedish American Museum at:
It actually looks like there is plenty to do if you are interested in discovering more about Swedish history, culture and ancestry.

There is a genealogy program scheduled for Saturday September 27, 2014 starting at 10:00 AM at the Museum. The title of the program is “Genealogy Problem Solving Group Discussion”. From their website, here is a description of the program:
GENEALOGY PROBLEM SOLVING GROUP DISCUSSION
Saturday, Sept. 27, 10 a.m. – noon
Come to this genealogy session that discusses how to get over brick walls in your own genealogy research. This will be a group discussion where we share our own research issues. You never know but someone else out there could have already dealt with and overcame the very problem you are facing. Cost is free for Nordic Family Genealogy Center members; non-members pay $10. Reservations appreciated. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Museum at 773.728.8111 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 September 2014.
