Sweden Genealogy Genline Workbook

Plan Ahead

Obviously you can not trace every line of your ancestors back to the beginning 
of the church records at one time. When ever your success ends on a specific line, 
put that last found ancestor on the to do list. Then you will know where to begin 
your search when you have time to use Genline again. See a sample of this type plan 
at this URL.

By having a list you are working from, you will have a direction to follow without 
having to dive into the middle of notes and copies. What you need to do next will be 
clear to you. This will save time. Be sure to include the last GID reference number 
where you have a direct fix on a specific person. Plus, note where the worksheet is 
located for that inquiry. See page 111 of this workbook for a sample form you may want 
to use to lay out your Genline Plan. See page 112 of this workbook for a sample 
worksheet you may want to make copies. These copies can be used for each of your 
ancestors for whom  you have yet to identify parents.

Notebooks Are Handy
All of these worksheets can be three hole punched then put in a three ring binder. 
The dividers may run something like this:
To Do Worksheets
Individuals
Dictionaries
Genline Copies
Internet Resources
Personal Genealogies
Hyperlink Indexes
Handwriting Examples
Source Book
Be careful not to punch any page where the hole punches will cause useful data to 
be lost. This is particularly true of Genline printed copies. I use page protectors 
to put pages into when the content runs all the way to the left edge of the page. 
Each page protector can hold several copies. These page protectors could be a method 
to organize pages about individuals or of families. Another wonderful addition to the 
organization of your notebook may be the A to Z tab dividers. Then you can put the 
worksheets for each person after their surname first letter. This will aid in finding 
details as needed.

Patience Makes Perfect
At first, as you seek and find your Swedish ancestors, the pace seems rapid. Every ten 
minutes, then every thirty minutes, then every hour it seems you have added another 
pair of names to your pedigree chart. Then it may take a couple hours to find the next 
pair. Then four hours. Finding one person took me at least 10 hours. But I found her. 
So as you work to find your ancestors in Swedish church records, be patient. If a 
search takes a very long time, enjoy the hunt. 

Genealogy reminds me somewhat of stamp collecting, another of my interests. As a 
collector, when you have a blank space in a stamp album, the focus is to find a 
copy of that stamp. As a collector you have to fill that space. That's what collecting 
is all about. So you ask around. You check sale brochures. You go to auctions and sales.
Eventually you develop a want list of the stamps you need and circulate it so everyone 
knows what you want.

Then one day you find the stamp you need. You buy it, bring it home, and as you mount 
it in the album you admire your purchase. Once the stamp is in the album you probably 
never look at it again. Sound familiar? Two lessons from this: enjoy the hunt, and 
from time to time go back and relive the found items you have collected. Satisfaction 
with your effort will increase your ability to have patience.

    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.

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.
