Will the Real Sven Larsson Please Stand Up?
by Dr. Dan Hubband
At The Swedish American Museum
Scandinavian last names can be fluid and confusing and Sweden is no exception. Swedish geography trips up the uninitiated- where are those records for Småland? Where did Sweden end and other Nordic countries begin?
You’ve got your swimsuit, so what else is needed to cross the Atlantic with your research and what records are there once you crawl up onto the shore?
Dr. Dan Hubbard is First Vice President of Lake County Genealogical Society.
This event is co-sponsored with the Swedish American Museum, 5211 North Clark Street in Chicago. The museum will be open for touring following the meeting. Join us there!
Parking Update: The Swedish American Museum has acquired parking space in the former Nelson Funeral Home lot. Enter on Foster between Ashland and Clark. The lot is on the north side of Foster. Curbside parking spots are often open on Ashland (best bet) and Foster. Members are encouraged to car pool. Use the map on the Member-Only page to find your nearest neighbor.
