Bob Johnson's presentation:  
Historical Weights, Measures, and Money of Sweden
Many of the typical genealogical documents used in Swedish research (probate records, marriage records, church account books, tax records, property records, and others) often include references to weight, measures, and money..  But how do we understand these often culturally laden words like lod, mark, ain, and dozens of others?  This presentation is intended to give you the basic knowledge to recognize the meaning of the most common weights, measures, and money terms.  We will also review a couple of handy tools for conversion from historic to modern units
The webinar will be LIVE and also recorded, so registrants will have access to recordings of the lectures for a period of time after the event.  Times listed are Central Daylight Time.
Registration and biographical details will be added to this space later, and members will be notified by email.
