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 2016 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.

The Swedish American Genealogical Society has a genealogy program on the 4th Saturday of each month from January to November at the Museum. There is a Genealogy Program scheduled for Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 10 AM to 12 Noon. The title of this month’s program is “How Genealogy Roadshow Solved Author’s Family Mystery”. The presenter will be Gail Lukasik, award winning mystery author. Members of the Swedish American Genealogical Society can attend for free. Non-members can attend for a $10 fee. Reservations for attendance are appreciated.
From the newsletter, here is a description of the program:
“Learn how PBS’s Genealogy Roadshow unraveled the mysteries around author Gail Lukasik’s family history”.
