Hello Wilma -- I think you could an anwer to my prayers! My grandfather is from Sweden and I am just trying to figure out family history, and in Swedish is making it a bit more difficult -- but I am determined to learn this! I would love to come up to the library in Salt Lake, (I live in Orem). I would love to come at a time when you will be there -- what days and times do you work there? Thank you so much for your help!
I neglected to do what you asked....

The Family History Library has reference desks on each floor of the library in Salt Lake. These desks are staffed with research consultants with a variety of skills. You will be happy to know that on the B1 floor, the south side of the reference desk is for patrons with questions about Nordic Research. There is always someone at the desk from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m on Mondays. You may come at your conveniece and speak with anyone at the Nordic Desk and they will be able to help you with your Swedish research questions. I also fill assignments at the Nordic desk, so you may even see me. Our schedules vary from day to day and week to week so it is hard for me to tell you if I will be at the desk any particular time. We look forward to helping you here at the library. No appointment is necessary. Just come when you can.
There are also a couple of other ways you can also get help.
- FamilySearch has a forum and you are welcome to post your questions and the community can answers those questions. You will be surprized at the wonderful answers that are given by the community. Some of the community are actually residents in Sweden. Here is the link to the Swedish Forum. https://www.familysearch.org/learn/forums/en/forumdisplay.php?f=96?cid=wiki-forum
- FamilySearch also was a Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/SwedenGenealogy?cid=GRCW_Sweden Sweden Genealogy Research is a facebook page designed to help people get answers to Swedish research questions.
Hope this information is helpful for you and hope to meet you sometime soon at the Family History Library or in the forum or on facebook.
