In the summer of 2015, I was invited to do a presentation for the Swedish American Genealogist (SAG) workshop which was to be held at the Family History Library in downtown Salt Lake City. They asked me to present on “Interpreting Money in Swedish Records.” We see references to money in the records all the time and are left wondering what was it worth? How does it shed light on the living circumstances, or life of my ancestor?

Turns out the financial history of Sweden is really complicated, but I had a couple months to prepare. So how did it go? After reading up on the subject, and studying materials written by Swedish authorities, it came together very well. I learned a lot, the attendee’s and the SAG staff were all very grateful.

Video Lessons on YouTube

I love doing Swedish genealogy and helping others learn how to do it too. The Swedes have created a wealth of study material to learn how to do Swedish genealogy with relatively little translated into English. Gratefully I had the opportunity to learn the language and enjoy studying their handbooks and other authoritative resources.

So I decided to share this knowledge by creating videos on YouTube. Beginning in April of 2015 I started recording lessons for The Swedish Genealogy Guide YouTube channel with links in the The Swedish Genealogy Guide Learning Center. So far I have 11 lessons with more on the way. See what’s available at: The Swedish Genealogy Guide Learning Center.

Research Tips

Always work from the known to the unknown. You can waste a lot of time searching for clues in far fetched places. Eventually you start making conclusions and run the risk of getting further and further from what you know is right. Stick with what you know and build on it.
