Program Information
The topic for the February monthly meeting will be “Researching Your Norwegian and Swedish Roots.”

Andy Likins says, “Three decades ago, I went to Scandinavia to research my roots. Today, I can do much of the same research in my pajamas at home. We’ll look at basics of Norwegian and Swedish research including naming patterns, passenger lists, censuses, and church records.”
