About the workshop

Meet fellow Swedish American Genealogist subscribers in Salt Lake City and spend six days in the Latter-Day Saints' Family History Library researching your family history in Swedish records.

 

Our expert staff of Swedish researchers will guide you, and you will have the option to attend one or two daily lectures that we and the Family History Library staff will provide about various Swedish genealogical and historical topics.

Location

The Workshop fee includes seven nights at the conveniently-located Salt Lake Plaza Hotel. Daily research and lectures take place at the Family History Library.

 

The library and hotel lie back-to-back in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. You will be within walking distance of Temple Square and steps away from a light rail station that can take you to a variety of shops, restaurants, and sites.

How to attend

Because of its origins with the Swedish American Genealogist quarterly, the Workshop is open to SAG readers. SAG is a free benefit to members of the Swenson Center. Become a member today! Members are mailed Workshop reservation forms in the early spring upon request

The SAG quarterly was founded in 1981 by the late Nils William Olsson. He began the genealogy workshop in Salt Lake City in 1991, it was carried on for ten years by two of his children, Karna Olsson and Christopher Olsson, and the Workshop continues today (since 2008) under the direction of Jill Seaholm and the Swenson Center. 

 

Contact Jill to request information about the next Workshop.

Dates

The next SAG workshop is scheduled for November 13-20, 2022.
