The Sweet Home Genealogical Society has renewed a subscription to the Swedish website, DigitalArkiv.net. If you have Swedish ancestors that you wish to find and document, this is the site you need to use. We have a few volunteers that are familiar with Swedish research that will be glad to assist you in your research. Since not all of these volunteers are at the Library everyday, it would be helpful for you to make arrangements ahead of your visit for a volunteer to be here. Bring what you know. There are also books and other helps available for research in Sweden.
In the next few weeks, the Sweet Home Genealogical Society will be taking in a two community events, the Fall Harvest Festival October 3 at Sanky Park from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and the Open House at the Senior Center October 10 from 4:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. This is a time when we can meet more of the citizens from the area. If you are in the area, please come by and say "Hello, I saw on your Website you would be here".
Our monthly meetings are held the third Saturday of the month at 1:00 pm, except June, July, August, our summer break and December. Our March meeting is our annual two day workshop. The December meeting is the Christmas Luncheon, when we draw the winning tickets for the Raffle Baskets. The Board of Directors meet the second Monday of the month at 1:00 pm. Our meetings are open to the public, membership is not required.
