New Society Offering - Fika!
Sunday, January 30
New Society Offering - Fika!  (Other Genealogical Events)
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Live Virtual Discussion
Are you having trouble with a word or phrase in a Swedish document?
Are you trying to figure out where your ancestor might have come from in Sweden?
Maybe you are wondering how to overcome a Swedish genealogical roadblock?
Or maybe you have just missed chatting with other Society friends?
You are invited to Fika! As a free benefit to members, SGSM is offering a monthly, hour-long virtual gathering called Fika. Grab a cup of coffee and logon to join your fellow Swedish family researchers for conversation, learning, and getting to know each other.
Fika is not a class or presentation, but an open discussion where Fika friends can ask questions and assist other researchers. We will kick off each meeting with a quick (10 minutes or so) introduction to Swedish place, document type, or research method, just to get the conversation rolling.
When: 30 January 2022, Sunday, 2:00 PM
Where: Zoom (Members will receive an email with a link to the Zoom meeting.)  
Topic for January: Dalarna
BYOC: Bring Your Own Coffee (and snack)
No registration is required. 

“Oh, It’s Around Here Somewhere”

“Oh, It’s Around Here Somewhere”  (Meetings)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Eleanor O. Brinsko, MLIS - Live Virtual Webinar (Recorded)
What is hiding in your storage places that can help your genealogical searches?
There are many great resources available online for our genealogy research, but they can only get us so far. The best resources, though, are hiding in basements and attics in our houses and relatives' houses. This is usually the place that holds the answer to breaking down brick walls. Eleanor Brinsko will give us great ideas to help us find those hidden genealogical resources.
Eleanor Brinsko is a professional genealogist who specializes in Scandinavian-American genealogy by looking at genealogical and social trends on both sides of the Atlantic. Eleanor's website is www.carlongenealogy.com.
This will be a virtual online meeting (times are CST). The cost is $5.00 per household and you must register in advance. We can accommodate 100 participants in the live Zoom meeting and SGSM members will be given priority. Any remaining space for the live presentation will be first-come, first-served based on registration date. All paid registrants will be able to access the recording after the meeting. Online registrations will be accepted until March 16.
