Not everyone has the time or the knowledge required to search in the archives, or maybe not speaking Swedish might be an issue, and this is where I can assist.

I do most kinds of research in available church books, tax records, and if needed, court books, for example:

  • Family trees. I’ll find all the vital information about a person, the parents, and, if there were any siblings and where the family lived. I note everything of interest that might be recorded about the persons in the sources. We can limit the research to a certain number of generations or concentrate on a straight line with just your ancestors, without siblings. Or maybe just one individual's life history. Normally, it is possible to trace a family back to the end of the 17th century, or the beginning of the 18th century, depending on if the church records still exist. If "your" parish has church records that started to be kept early, it might be possible to get even further back in time, as well as if you have nobility or priests in your tree.

  • Brick walls. Maybe you have bumped into an irritating Swedish roadblock in your research. I love brick walls, to take them down is one of my specialties!

  • Translations. Do you have an old document you need help to read, translate, or transcribe? No problem, I do that too.

  • Swedish cousins. Do you want to find living relatives in Sweden? I'll find them for you. Were you not selected to participate in "Allt för Sverige"?
    Create your own adventure when you know where your ancestors lived, follow in their footsteps!

  • DNA. Have you taken a DNA test and need some help to analyze the result and how you are related to the matches?

There are many different reasons why you might need the help of a professional genealogist, so please contact me with your thoughts and questions, and we will find a solution that suits you and your wishes!


Of course, I use only original sources and first-hand information in my research! The digital archives I utilize are primarily Arkiv Digital, SVAR, and Ancestry, but also other sources if needed.

When the research is completed the report will be delivered in digital transmission.

My work is normally on an hourly rate and costs 45 USD/ hour including taxes.

Of course, it is very difficult to predict how long time the research will take, but three generations with all children and data in the 19th and 20th centuries, usually take around 10 hours to find, if there are no major obstacles.

Payment is made either with PayPal or with a deposit in Our Swedish Roots' bank account when the ordered research assignment is completed.

(When PayPal is used I'll add 4,5 % of the sum to cover a part of PayPal's fee for the money transfer.)

The company is approved for F-tax and registered for VAT.
