Why does one want to have a family tree?
Welcome to Ourswedishroots, my page for Swedish genealogy! It is directed primarily to you who have your roots in the Swedish soil, and who wants a little help to find them. Even if I am specialized in Swedish genealogy, I also do research in Norway, Denmark and Åland.
Not everyone has the time or the knowledge required to search in the archives, and that’s where I can help.
It gives a sense of security in knowing your background, and many things you might have wondered about in your family will get an explanation. You may even encounter things that have been kept secret for generations, but still affected ancestral behavior right down to yourself.
Other examples are the many descendants of emigrants who carry the feeling of longing for something, and I have noticed that it can make a big difference when these people get the names of their dead ancestors and a geographical area to place their roots.
Maybe you have taken a DNA test and want to find out how you are related to your matches? Or did your ancestors come from Viking areas?
But above all, it’s very exciting to be able to locate your family on the history map and also a joy to give your children, and in the future their children, a family tree!
