“Old Swedish American Newspapers – New Treasure Trove for Online Research” by Bengt Sjögren.

As Swedes arrived to the US in large numbers, hundreds of Swedish-language newspapers were published from 1850 onwards. Recently 28 such newspapers were digitized and they are now searchable – providing a great source of information.

Cost is free for Swedish American Genealogical Society members; $10 for non-members to participate. Reservations appreciated and can be made via email to genealogy@samac.org or by calling the Museum at 773.728.8111.
