Researching Nordic Roots, Coming to WRHS on Nov. 1

by , under Ethnic Research, Family History Research, WRHS

I am distributing the following announcement of a class I will be teaching at WRHS on November 1:

“Our Nordic Families: How to Research Your Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, and Finnish Families,” will be presented by Wally Huskonen, member of the Genealogical Committee, on Saturday, November 1, 2014. He has researched his Finnish ancestry for nearly two decades, and conducted research for clients and friends with Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish ancestry. He has found that the four countries have much in common in terms of genealogical research, and he will discuss how to begin your research with home sources, then move on to finding ancestral parishes, looking up data on free and subscription online databases, working with church records, translating documents, and many related subjects. The class will begin at noon in the WRHS Research Library and end at 2 pm. Fee for class and handout materials is $15.00. Register at or by emailing

I’d like to see  you there! If you have any questions about the class content, shoot me an email at
