Hands-On ArkivDigital Workshop in “Little Sweden U.S.A.”

leslyeArkivDigital and the McPherson County Old Mill Museum in Lindsborg, Kansas have a partnership whereby the museum sponsors spring and fall ArkivDigital workshops. The workshop offers participants two days filled with presentations and hands-on training using ArkivDigital. The 2016 fall workshop will be held the weekend October 1-2.

The workshops are a great opportunity to learn how to research your Swedish roots using ArkivDigital.  Shari from Kansas who attended the spring 2016 workshop summed up the weekend experience by saying, “This was a very useful weekend for me. I had access to people I could ask questions for two days straight. It was nice to be able to work on my research and have someone to talk a problem over with.”

Lindsborg, Kansas is known as “Little Sweden U.S.A.” because it was settled by Swedish emigrants in 1869 from Värmland. The town is well known for the Svensk Hyllningsfest, and other celebrations promoting its Swedish heritage. The Svensk Hyllningsfest has been held in October of odd-numbered years since 1941.

One of the local attractions is the McPherson County Old Mill Museum with exhibits in 12 buildings showing the lives of early Kansas settlers. One of the buildings is the Swedish Pavilion from the 1904 World’s Fair. The museum receives many visitors exploring their Swedish ancestry and requests for Swedish research.

Attend one of these workshops and discover your Swedish roots as well as meet other participants from across Swedish-America and together celebrate your Swedish heritage. Explore and enjoy the Swedish community of Lindsborg and its small town charm.
