Scandinavian Genealogy Research

with Jill Morelli

1pm – 4:30pm

Intimidated by international genealogy research? Don’t worry! Scandinavian records are some of the most approachable. Learn how to access and effectively use the “Big Three”—parish, census/clerical surveys, and emigration records—for Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Don’t know your immigrant’s parish of birth? We’ll talk about that, too. This highly interactive class will ensure that each participant leaves the session with a research plan specific for their country of origin.

Instructor Jill Morelli writes and lectures extensively in the Puget Sound area on a variety of subjects related to genealogical records sets and successful research techniques, as well as her German and Scandinavian heritage. To learn more about methodology and problem-solving for the “on-the-clock” genealogist, read her blog.

Cost: $18 for Members, $22 general admission
