Crossing the Pond to Scandinavia by Jill Morelli, CG, CGL

October 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm

If you have Scandinavian ancestry in the stories your family told you, your documentary trail or your ethnicity estimates, you might find this presentation clears up some questions and puts you on a path for success. We will explore the records of Norway, Sweden and Denmark– showing the easiest way to identify the parish of birth, understanding some of the broad context and understanding the handwriting of the 1800s for each. We will even discuss those pesky DNA percentages of Scandinavian in your ethnicity estimates. I love working in these records and there is support out there if you get stuck!
