“How to Find the Unknown Father” by Geoffrey Fröberg Morris
Many Swedish researchers reach a stumbling block in their research when they discover a birth record of an ancestor where the mother is unmarried and the father’s name is not given. Can one find out who the father is so one can continue the research? Geoffrey Morris will present strategies in how to overcome this obstacle in his presentation “How to Find the Unknown Father”.
Geoffrey Fröberg Morris AG has been doing Swedish genealogical research for over 35 years. He has been employed for 20 years at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah, as a Nordic research specialist. Among his work assignments, Geoff has helped thousands of people search for their Swedish ancestors, engaged in many archival visits in Sweden, authored hundreds of pages into the Family Search Wiki and routinely presents at conferences. He is the author of the book, A Practical Guide to Swedish Church Records for Genealogy and Family History, which was published in 2020.
