SFHS has very talented and dedicated volunteers, such as Hasse Nygård. His web skills and dedication to Swedish Finn genealogy is a gift to SFHS. The SFHS Wiki site, its knowledge base, is constantly expanding. It is about all things Swedish Finn.
Although Swedish Finns are a small group, we have a vast amount of research at our fingertips. Please take the time to explore the hard work of our volunteers. We would not exist without their help and commitment!
Our members receive four journals a year called the The Quarterly. Every issue is packed with articles on genealogy, Swedish Finn Culture, recipes, and family stories. Without the support of our members we could not continue to preserve the history of Swedish Finn immigrants and we would not be able to produce such a great journal. Take a look at an issue of The Quarterly and consider giving your support by becoming a member. Thank you!
We are now sending out an e-newsletter four times a year. The purpose of this newsletter is to keep communication open with our members. We are hoping to start a regular conversation. Tell us about events in your area and don't hesitate to tell us how we can improve the newsletter. Read the latest issue and send us a note!
