Many sought help to discover where in Sweden their ancestor came from, translation help on records as well as viewing short demos on how to search in ArkivDigital. But again this year, we had to explain to a couple of visitors that Sweden is not Switzerland.

A woman from Utah was moved to tears of happiness to discover the place in Sweden where her ancestor came from which was Högby, Kalmar. She had been looking for thirty years. Even more exciting was discovering that her ancestor had siblings that she knew nothing about. See the above picture.

We wish to thank all our customers who stopped by the booth to say hello and told us how appreciative they are of ArkivDigital and how they love the new search indexes especially the Population of Sweden 1860 to 1930.
