Finding my ne’er-do-well, scoundrel Swedish great-grandfather by Greg Paris
My great-grandfather emigrated from Sweden to central Pennsylvania in the late 1800s, sired my grandmother, then disappeared — abandoning a young mother with an infant-in-arms, and leaving behind a puzzle. Who was he? Where did he go? Where did he come from? Why was he such a jerk? A century-old family puzzle and brick wall, finally laid to rest — with the help of some DNA and ArkivDigital. A part of the larger story of one family’s journey: the diaspora from Älvsborg to the wilds of Pennsylvania.

Cost is free for the Swedish American Museum’s Genealogical Society members; non-member cost is $10. Reservations required and can be made via email to genealogy@samac.org or by calling 773.728.8111 for members. Non-members can use the PayPal button below.
