Genealogy Club

Work on your Swedish genealogy research with us


About Genealogy Club

Join Head of Genealogical Services Jill Seaholm and Swenson Center volunteers once a month and work on your Swedish genealogy research with us.


Show us what you’re working on.

Hit a brick wall? We won’t have all the answers, but ask us questions (or answer ours)!

Not actively doing research? Come anyway!


We’ll also have discussions about various aspects of Swedish-American and Swedish family history research—with a monthly theme—from the different types of records available to research in specific Swedish regions.


Virtual Meetings

Online via Zoom on the 3rd Monday of the month (January through October only) from 6:00-7:00pm Central Time. We hope to add in-person attendance for locals at a later date.



(& Augustana College students)



$10 (become a member)

Space is limited. Registration is required by the day before each session. We will email the Zoom link to you the day before. 

All skill levels welcome!
