Researching Scandinavian ancestors
November 16 @ 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
$25 – $40
Do you have family who came from northern European countries? Researching any of your European ancestors can be challenging if you do not speak the language but perhaps even more so in the Scandinavian/Nordic countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland where there is only a small number of given names and surnames. This presentation will provide guidance for focusing on your ancestor and eliminating other possible family lines as well as a discussion on the major events which affected families and the major records used in online research. Recent record digitization for Denmark, Norway and Sweden puts images of the church records at your finger tips.
