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 July 2015 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:
There is a genealogy program scheduled for Saturday, July 25, 2015 titled “The Meaning of Home” that will take place between 10 AM and Noon.
What does “home” mean to you – a place, a person, or a feeling? What did “home” mean to your ancestors? View the current Museum exhibit titled Chicago’s Families: Finding Home; then join a member discussion about how your ancestors/relatives and you view home. Did your relatives discuss their Swedish home? What did they miss? How did they make their American home Swedish? What makes your house a Swedish home?
Cost is free for Nordic Family Genealogy Center/Swedish American Genealogical Society members; non-members pay $10.
Reservations appreciated. You can contact the Nordic Family Genealogy Center through the museum at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It actually looks like there is plenty to do if you are interested in discovering more about Swedish history, culture and ancestry.
