The Swedish Colonial Society, which published most of the available writings of their late genealogist, Dr. Peter Stebbins Craig, has released a completely new website. They have now made available, for free, all of the "Forefather" articles as well as back issues of the Swedish Colonial News (1990 - 2014) and its successor, The Swedish Colonial Society Journal (2015 - present). See the "NEWS" tab on their home page. The site includes additional essays, maps, church histories and other items of genealogical interest.

The Swedish Colonial Society has a YDNA project for males who believe they descend from one of the Forefathers.  The project was initially funded by donation to find gold standard YDNA to help prove Forefather status.  The project is listed on the FamilyTreeDNA website.  To participate, take the FTDNA 37 marker YDNA test, and join the Project.  Funding is no longer available.  If you have questions, feel free to send look on the SCS website or message me.  Cynthia Forde, Genealogist, Swedish Colonial Society
