The Network Genealogical Adventures in Sweden – is a network focused on promoting genealogical and heritage travels to Sweden for Swedish-Americans and other interested persons.
The Network Genealogical Adventures in Sweden was formed to help those who are planning a trip to Sweden to visit one’s ancestor’s homeland by:
- Providing genealogical research or assistance.
- Planning your trip and stay in Sweden.
- Contacting relatives in Sweden.
- Providing a guide to show you the places in Sweden that you wish to see, specifically where your ancestor lived.
You may want help with all four items or only one. You can travel on your own, with your family, with friends, with a group or in a tour.
The Network will arrange for you to get in contact with a genealogist and/or guide in the area of Sweden where your ancestors lived. Network members work together to make your trip easy and as rewarding as possible.
It can be difficult to visit a new country without knowing anyone. One previous traveler commented:
“Without knowing the language and how to research in the country; it is difficult to find other places or people who are living relatives or know about ancestors of one’s family.”
The Network was created in March 2019, by Anna Broman of Takvandring AB (Rooftop Tours) in Sundsvall and Annelie Jonsson, chairwoman of the Adventure Skaraborg Society in Falköping after a travel agency in the United States asked the Adventure Skaraborg Society for a recommendation for a researcher and guide in the province of Medelpad. After this initial contact was made, the Network was created.
The network membership consists of many experienced genealogy researchers as well as guides who are skilled in arranging small group trips and tours for Swedish-Americans.
The number of members in the network has grown since March 2019 and continues to grow. Members come from Lappland in the North to Skåne in the South. The Network includes members of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG).
