Welcome!

If you have Scandinavian ancestors CONGRATULATIONS! The Scandinavian Countries are the best place in the world to research family history. Not only do they have great records, many of which are available online, but they are enthusiastic about genealogy and they have developed great resources to assist you.

This website is meant to support your journey in discovering your Scandinavian ancestors, whether Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, or Danish!  Whether you are brand new to genealogy and you have not made that leap across the sjö to the old country or are an experienced researcher, I hope you will find information of use here. I have been doing research on Scandinavian-Americans for almost 40 years and have found a wealth of information and resources, but I have yet to find a one-stop-shop for all things Scandinavian genealogy for Americans. That is what I aim to provide here. So please join me in this adventure.
