Need Help With Research or Translation?

If you need assistance with research or translation, send your query to us at info@sgsmn.org with any information that you have. Go to our Research Page for complete details about what services SGSM volunteers provide and how you can contact them by email or mail. During COVID-19 restrictions, SGSM research help is not available at the Minnesota Genealogical Society library. You can still visit the library to do your own research, but before you go check the current MGS library hours and schedule a time to visit.

Tidningen Back-Issues are on the Website

All Tidningen back-issues encompassing 1997-Present are available to our members on the website in the "Tidningen Archive" under Member Login. There are directions on that page for accessing the issues and article indexes. If you have forgotten your Username or Password, contact us membership@sgsmn.org for assistance. We will add new issues as they are published and all members will continue to receive their printed copies in the mail.
