Swedish TV Show

Do you ever watch the genealogy show “Who Do You Think You are?”

 Well, a few weeks ago the society received the following email:
“Hi, My name is Fredrik Mejster and I am working as a genealogist for a Swedish TV show named "Allt för Sverige". It is about ten Swedish Americans that get a chance to come back to Sweden and learn more about their Swedish heritage. One of our participants has connections to Lawrenceville and I am trying to find her ancestor’s place of birth and place of death.”

After verifying that this wasn’t a scam the researchers got busy and found the information requested and forwarded it to Sweden.  Now we were not told the actual participant’s name, but we were quite thrilled to know that this website had reached across the ocean.  Someone might just get a vacation to
Sweden because of the information we provided. . ..  and who says genealogy isn’t important


Have a good week, and remember get those photos ready for the photo contest in June and buy your tickets for the cemetery tour May 30th

PS you can watch past seasons of the Genealogy show on YouTube.
