New member introducing myself

I have been doing genealogy for over ten years, and I love this human puzzle!

I have no direct questions, but am more interested in what WikiTree can give me. New tips on common ancestors, inspiration of others research etc.

My ancestors come mainly from Västra Götaland, a region in the western part of Sweden, where Gothenburg is a hub. Svensson, Ahlstedt, Hellström etc.

But I also have origins from Norway (according to DNA test), and this is an area that I have not explored yet.

Hello Robert,

If you go to the top right of the WikiTree page and click on the "Find" menu, it will open. Look down to see "Surnames." Then, enter your own surname where there is a list of over 3,700 Svenssons.
