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 August 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.

There is a genealogy program scheduled for Saturday, August 22, 2015 titled “National Archives Great Lakes Region” that will take place between 10 AM and Noon.
Here is a small program summary from the website of the museum for the event:
