Swedish ancestors is currently working on a translation of John Melander's diaries. It is a collaboration with Swedish America Heritage Online. It is 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.

Swedish ancestors has finished working on the translation of the minutes of the Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Church in Brushy, Texas. Or the Palm Valley Lutheran Church in Round Rock, Texas which it is known as today. The minutes range from the years 1874 to 1904. The project was a collaboration with Swedish America Heritage Online with the help of the retired pastor of the congregation: Pastor Elroy Haverlah.

"It has been a pleasure to work with you both. We can now look back and enjoy the fruit of our long labors. And many other people will be able to read these minutes and learn firsthand about the history of this Swedish-American congregation and the ancestors of many families. Thank you so much." - Pastor Elroy Haverlah
