Jan Carlson | How to Travel Trouble-Free & Absorb Your History in Sweden
Saturday, January 15, 2022
Jan Carlson | How to Travel Trouble-Free & Absorb Your History in Sweden  (Meetings)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Annual Meeting - Live Virtual Webinar (Recorded)

She is a long-time member of SGSM and author of the “Because You Asked” column, along with many other feature articles in the Tidningen. Jan will be sharing her expertise regarding the ins & outs of traveling in Sweden, what you need to know before you go, what you need to know once you get there, and how to glean the most about your family's history when you finally set foot in the old country.

Jan has been to Sweden 8 times, often for extended periods of time. She worked for ArkivDigital in Minnesota & Wisconsin for several years, photographing Swedish-American church records for inclusion in their database. She also spent 30 years from the 1970s through the 1990s doing programs of Scandinavian folk and emigrant music in the Upper Midwest, beginning with the Snoose Boulevard Festival in Minneapolis.

This will be our annual meeting, followed by a live virtual webinar, starting at 10am Central Standard Time. The cost is $5.00 per household and you must register in advance. We can accommodate 100 participants in the live Zoom 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 for 6 months after the meeting.
