Swedish American Genealogy Humor


This collection of humorous thoughts by a Swedish American genealogist in booklet form will provide belly laughs, snickers, understanding nods, and chuckles to you if you have experience working on Swedish Genealogy with Genline.

Some entries will make you think. Others may make you groan. A few entries are not related to genealogy but focus on Swedish American life. Many will remind you of growing up in a Swedish American family. All will make you happy to be a Swedish American.

The handwriting script type style is used to simulate the handwriting in Swedish Church Records. Samples of these entries can be found at the bottom of several pages of the Sweden Genealogy Genline Workbook. Here's one of my favorites:

For hundreds of years our Swedish ancestors scratched out an existence from a clearing in the dense forest. They planted crops in rocky soil and hoped the growing season would be long enough for a good harvest. Us? We complain if the supermarket doesn't have a 12 ounce size of mustard and we have to buy a 16 ounce size container instead. My how times and fortunes have changed.
