Kathy Meade of ArkivDigital will be the presenter at the Swedish Genealogical Society of Minnesota’s meeting in Edina, Minnesota on Saturday, March 19th.

The title of the presentation is “Exploring Further in ArkivDigital – Discovering New Records”.  There will be a demonstration on how to search for less commonly used records such as tax/ population registers, military pension records, Swedish American church books, passenger ship manifests, passport journals as well as other record types. In addition, new features in the beta version such as searching in the 1950 Swedish census and other new features will be presented.

If you happen to be in the Minneapolis area, this will be a great opportunity to learn more about the rich resources within ArkivDigital.
