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.

The Swedish American Museum will be offering a Genealogy Program on Saturday, October 24, 2015 from 10 AM to 12 Noon. The program title is “Writing A Family History”. It will be presented by Dr. Daniel Hubbard.
Here is the text from the museum’s website that describes the program:
Writing A Family History
Saturday, October 24, 2015; 10 AM to 12 Noon
Join us for this session with Dr. Dan Hubbard, a professional genealogist, who will instruct guests on how to go about writing your family history. Dan will discuss not just the “how-to” but also the “why-do.” What’s the best way to improve your research? Want your relatives and descendants to understand your research?
Be encouraged to write your ancestors’ stories and see how far it takes you!
Cost is free for Genealogy Center/Genealogical Society members; non-member cost is $10. Reservations appreciated. You may firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP or ask any questions you may have about this session or call the Museum at 773.728.8111 and leave a message for the genealogy volunteer.
Note: The Nordic Family Genealogy Center is changing its name to the Swedish American Genealogical Society.
Sounds like a topic of research that is important for all of us to consider. Take your research data and convert it into that family history story you can share with the world.
