Welcome to Sweden
This is the trip for you who want to experience and find out more about Sweden, while at the same time you get the opportunity to learn more about genealogy and perhaps specifically get on with your own family history.
The Trip begins in Gothenburg.
We walk down “Sillgatan” (Herring street) to the place where the boats left, heading for America.
During the trip in Västergötland, we stay in Alingsås (a town founded for over four hundred years ago) here are the first lessons in genealogy at the Grand Hotell.
Ornunga church from around year 1230. The church was to be demolished in 1905 when a new church was built but was preserved thanks to fortunate circumstances.
SwedGen genealogy center in Hössna. Second day of genealogy.
In the areas around Falköping there is much of Sweden's old history. The Ekornavallen with graves from SEK 3300 BC to the Viking Age. Katagård was excavated in 2005 and is a church from the late Viking Age.
Åsle Tå, what a village street could look like in the 19th century.
We show and tell you about the Sweden we love.
When you book the trip, you also choose the level of your genealogy skills. Before the trip, you can contact someone in SwedGen so that they can do any research on questions you have.
Friday the 23rd of June is Midsummer Eve. Take the opportunity to extend the trip so you can experience a real Swedish midsummer
