Researching Sweden and Swedish America


Welcome to our website!

We hope you enjoy the features included here that were not available on our old site. We still hope to find additional resources that will be of value to the members. They will be added to the secure side of our site requiring members to first logon to gain access to them.
Typical items are Newsletter back issues, and Speaker Handouts when available.

Need Help Researching?

Are you going to be in the Twin Cities? On the third Thursday of each month our society provides volunteers at the Minnesota Genealogical Society's Library from 10am to 4pm. You can check the Library hours at the MGS site. The library phone is 651-330-9312 to verify that they are open.
For those not able to attend a research session at the Minnesota Genealogical Society, research help can be accessed by sending a query, with any information that you have, to info@sgsmn.org
