Oakland (California) FamilySearch Library to have very strong support for Swedish family research. Along with some subscription databases not available at most FamilySearch Centers, two members of our staff have a dedicated day each week for Swedish research. One or both of them are available all day to assist beginning and experienced researchers with their Swedish family history.
Last year our library was part of the tour the SwedGen team made through the U.S. That was for an advanced research seminar. This year we are hosting a beginning Swedish research class on Saturday, October 18, 2014, from 10:30 a.m.–12:00 noon. If you have wanted to start your Swedish research but weren't sure what to do, this class is for you. It is designed not only to help you find your ancestors, but also to get in touch with living relatives.
The class is free, but preregistration is required. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Oakland FamilySearch Library is at 4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland, CA 94602. There is a large parking lot available. Public transportation is more difficult, but AC Transit has one line that goes up Lincoln from the Fruitvale BART station. Information on how to make that connection is in my post on using BART to get to East Bay genealogy research locations.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
