Contacting a Swedish genealogical society can be a great step to expand or enrich your family history. With over 160 societies in Sweden, you will find that the size of membership, organization, and resources vary a lot group to group. Some factors are consistent such as:

  • They have a wealth of local knowledge that may help in finding your ancestors.
  • The society may have created research tools (like indexes or databases) to make research easier for their locality.
  • The members are happy to connect with people whose ancestors come from their locality.

There is a umbrella organization called The Federation of Swedish Genealogical Societies (Sveriges Släktforskarförbund) that most societies belong to.
