On Saturday, January 28th, Kathy Meade of ArkivDigital gave a presentation at the American Swedish Historical Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the oldest Swedish American museum in the United States. The museum is located on part of a 17th-century land grant originally provided by Queen Christina of Sweden to settlers of New Sweden.
It was wonderful to meet so many researchers from the Philadelphia area. The presentation was held in the New Sweden gallery. There were many positive comments about the new name searching functions within ArkivDigital 2.0. Following the presentation, individual research assistance was given in the Nord Library.
The genealogy afternoon was followed by a wonderful Swedish pea soup and punch supper (Ärtsoppa och Punsch).
