 A Tale of Two Grandfathers: How to Research Your Swedish Roots.

This presentation briefly describes the research steps Robin took before going to Sweden that allowed her to get the most out of the trip. Then it follows her journey to family farms, churches, grave sites, and even as she meets living relatives in Sweden.

Robin Sutherland is a second grade teacher in Colorado Springs. She has been working on genealogy since 1985. Her goal is to trace all of her family branches back to their country of origin. Her husband Ray is actually the Swed. This was her first trip abroad and it more than met her expectations.
