Current bigger project

Swedish ancestors is currently working on a translation of John Melander's diaries. It's a collaboration with Swedish American Heritage Online. It's John Melander's granddaughter Gloria Melander Jorgenson who has supplied the diaries ranging from the years 1886 to 1923. John Melander was a Swedish immigrant who came to America in 1842. The diaries starts in 1887 when John Melander lives on his farm in Minnesota with his wife Elna and their three boys; Gustaf, Emrik and Henrik.

You can follow the progress on Swedish American Heritage Online's webpage.
