Hi Michael,

Yes, there is a small of group (of two :) currently working together on profiles in the New Sweden project.

A good place to start would be viewing the category & associated Google doc for New Sweden Forefathers.  I got the ball rolling and identified 48 forefathers with Wikitree profiles, out of the 127 named by the Swedish Colonial Society.  There are probably more profiles already on Wikitree using an unexpected spelling.

Jim Angelo is taking on: Dalbo-5 , Helm-539, Fisk-143, Nilsson-20, Stake-1, Lom-6, Frände-11, Stille-2, Rambo-198, Cock-151, Gunnarson-1, Danielsson-121.

We'd appreciate your or anyone's help finding or creating profiles for the other forefathers or their families.  There is much work to do on last names at birth, primary sources, duplicates, etc.  I am an SCS member and have access to their newsletter/journal, so if there's someone you want to focus on, I'll be happy to check what they have by way of research.

Tusen tack!
Heather
