Mission Statement

We were founded in March 1983. Our bylaws state that the purpose of this organization shall be to:
  • Encourage interest in and expand knowledge of Swedish ancestry and heritage.
  • Exchange ideas relating to genealogical research and methodology.
  • Provide instruction on topics of interest to members.
  • Expand awareness of Swedish society and culture.
  • Encourage the research and writing of family, emigration/immigration and settlement histories, and publication of Swedish genealogical material.
We have quarterly meetings and there are always research and translation helpers at the meetings. The 3rd Thursday of every month our research and translation teams are at the MGS Library for Swedish research day.
