If you have Swedish ancestors or knowledge about Sweden and want to help us improve profiles then join Project Sweden.

For Swedish brick walls, your best chance is actually to ask for Genealogy Help here in G2G with the tag SWEDEN.

If you want to contribute to the project, do check out the project page and then answer this question with your reason for joining. We'll get you a badge and a welcome!

Please use the answer option rather than the comment option.

With a grandfather who was born in Skåne, I would like to join the Sweden Project.

Hi Ron!
You are badged and welcome.
My Great Great Grandparents were born in Hallefors, Orebro and Ljusnersberg, Orebro in the early 1840s and married 17 November 1867 in Kila, Vastmanland and I hope to learn more and help others as I learn enough to be able to help.  This is why I would like to join the Sweden Project.
I would like to join the Swedish Project. My great grandparents on my paternal grandmother's side came from Sweden approximately 1887 from Kaxsund, Bjurtjarn, Sweeden.

Thank you
My Great Grandfather was born in Broby, Sweden, I am interested in the project.
All of my mother's grandparents were born in Sweden and moved to Minnesota, USA as adults.  I have been putting a family tree together on Ancestry.com and a distant cousin in Sweden has been helping me.  He has enabled me to connect back through researching church records.

I found a third cousin who still is part owner of the farmhouse where our great grandparents were born in Hansjö, Orsa, Dalarna, Sweden.  We visited in 2016.
You are all welcome!

For newcomers to the thread:
Please do not answer by a comment.

This makes it difficult to give you an individual answer.

My grandmother's parents immigrated to Oslo, Norway from Oskarshamn, Kalmar, Sweden. So I find myself working more and more with this Swedish branch of my family - my ancestors, their siblings and spouses, and their descendants in Sweden, Norway and America.

So I suppose I ought to join this project. And learn to give my profiles the proper LNAB around 1900!

That is definitely worth a badge - although naming practices tend to be discussed here in G2G, out in the open, so to speak.
Thanks! :-)
