These English web pages are a good place to start a tour of Swedish genealogy. In these pages, you will find a lot of useful information about not only genealogy, but also Swedish history and language. Message board Anbytarforum - ancestor exchange forum is the Federation’s widely used message board. It has a section for discussions in English, but you can also post questions or information at the other pages. If you know the parish your ancestor came from or they had a family name apart from the son-names, then you can post your query at the actual parish or family name. You will surprisingly often get good answers on this message board. There is a small fee associated with belonging to this message board now.
