Scandinavian Immigration and Genealogy


Why did our ancestors leave their homelands?  Why did they come to the Midwest.  Did you know that Minnesota has the greatest number of Scandinavian-Americans in the United States?

Please join me as we discuss these historical trends that brought our Scandinavian ancestors to Minnesota, how I researched and traced my grandfather’s family, and how we reunited the current day families of all seven siblings – some in the United States and some in Norway.

This May presentation has been rescheduled and will take place at 2:45 p.m. on moved to Friday, June 14 at Vine’s Heritage Center in Mankato.
