Greetings! And welcome to my new blog location, I hope I have not lost anyone in the transition. I am not bringing over my old blog posts so let me introduce myself and what I hope to accomplish with this blog. First, my name is Bob Johnson, I am a professional genealogist and I have been doing Nordic-Scandinavian genealogy for over 40 years (Genealogical research of Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark.) Actually I started doing Nordic-Scando-Genealogy when Grandma Johnson sat me down and told me all those wonderful, if mostly fabricated, stories about my ancestors. I ended up being so fascinated by the stories that I eventually went to Sweden to live and study. And now I go as often as possible to Scandinavia for research trips.
There are so many great resources for this type of genealogy on the interwebs right now why do we need this blog? It is my hope that this can be a place to share insights and experiences and learn what is out there. So much of what I blog about points to existing resources that you may not know about, or tricks and tools for working through some of the difficulties found when working in Nordic-Scando Resources.
I hope you will join me on this exciting ride and visit often or subscribe to my blog.
