The Swedish American Museum Will Be Offering A “Genealogy Open House: Exploring Your Swedish Roots” Program On Saturday, November 15, 2014 From 11:00 AM To 4 PM

Hi Everyone!

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 genealogy program update 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:

The Swedish American Museum will be offering a Genealogy “Open House” on Saturday, November 15, 2014 from 11 AM to 4 PM that will allow you to meet “one-on-one” with genealogy experts to help you with your Swedish genealogy research.

Here is the text I received from the Museum describing the events of the day regarding this program:


Genealogy Open House: 

Exploring Your Swedish Roots

Saturday, Nov. 15, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Are you new to genealogy or an advanced researcher? There is something for everyone including individual attention just for you at our annual genealogy open house! Meet one-on-one with our experts for answers to questions relating to translation of documents, location of genealogy centers in Sweden, how to begin genealogy research, location of a parish, and more. Stations will be set up in the main floor gallery pertaining to different genealogical topics. Cost: $10 for members and non-members and can be paid at the door. Refreshments will be available for purchase.


Sounds like this is a great opportunity for anyone new to researching their Swedish roots or for the experienced researcher that has perhaps hit a brick wall in their Swedish genealogy research efforts.

There is plenty of time to fit this event into your calendar.  If you have been thinking about taking the plunge into researching your Swedish ancestors, this event may be the best “starting” place to begin your research process.
