In this overview of Swedish research, we will discuss overcoming perceived barriers, learning opportunities, and accessing records.  Even if you don't have Swedish ancestors, some of these techniques may help you with other foreign language research.

Shadle Park Library in Person and on ZOOM
Our Dec. speakers will be Dr. Larry Cebula and Tim Harrington
The Washington State Archives is in the process of digitizing and putting online the Territorial Court Case files. These records, dating from 1853 to 1889, is a treasure trove of historical documentation of life in the Washington Territory during its frontier period. Horse thieves and prostitutes, poisoners and pests encountered the legal system of the day. The case files are both a Who’s Who of territorial Washington and a window into the lives of individuals who left no other trace in the historical record. Dr. Larry Cebula and Tim Harrington, will describe the status of the digitization effort and highlight some of the more interesting cases.
