View Map

Don’t you wish you had a continuous record of your ancestors in America instead of a snapshot every ten years? Discover how the Swedish Lutheran Church kept track of its parishioners from the day they were born until the day they died, including baptisms, marriages, household examinations, moving, and death. They’re a genealogist’s dream come true! This program is co-sponsored by the Western Michigan Genealogical Society.
