    Sweden Genealogy Genline Workbook

Available April 2006, this step-by-step workbook will help you identify and locate your Swedish ancestors. With a computer connected to the internet, thousands of resources are waiting to help you discover your pedigree. The recently completed digitization of Swedish church records by Genline opens the volumes of church records for even the smallest of villages for you to pursue the records to identify  your ancestors.

You will be assisted in finding the name, birth month and year of your immigrant ancestors. Then these details are used to identify the parish from which each immigrant ancestor originated before coming to North America. Once the parish of origin is known through investigation, the real hunt begins for the parents of each person. Then the hunt continues for their parents. And on and on.

You can expect to go back 6 generations or more depending on your diligence and patience.

Click HERE to see the pedigree developed by the author David Ullian Larson.

Click HERE to see a description of each topic covered in the workbook.

A heavy grade good quality acid free paper is used for the production of this workbook to allow for it to be passed on from person to person over time.

The backs of each page remain blank so pertinent notes can be added to personalize the workbook where appropriate. Further, each page is three hole punched so the spiral binding can be removed and the pages eventually put in a three ring binder. With this, pages can be added as needed.

8 1/2 inch by 11 inch 140 pages, three hole punched with a plastic spiral binding. Written in English.
