When you’re tired of deciphering random records

Building a reliable family tree is tricky. What records should you use? What do they say and what does it mean? And on top of that you’re doing it in a made up language! Maybe not made up per se, but ”Lefvnads- och Sjukdoms-omständigheter.” Really?

Feel familiar?

Maybe you spent
$200 on a subscription only to get irrelevant hints in the hundreds.

Perhaps you've browsed free genealogy sites, unable to tell which Anders Andersson is yours.

You may have searched all of the internet for your family name to find any sort of clue.

But I’m here to help you discover your Swedish family history and make sense of it.

Even with…

  • not knowing Swedish. 
  • little information about your ancestry in Sweden.
  • a full schedule.
  • a persistent brick wall in the 1850s.

What if you could understand your ancestor’s life in Sweden?

You’ve traced your Swedish family back to Kerstin Eriksdotter, born in 1736. At age 25, Kerstin was pregnant, unmarried, and facing a life of stigma. She married the father, but life continued to be hard for Kerstin. And in the end, it makes sense that the records says she died at 53 of ”old age”.

You can get there. That’s why I created Shortcut to Sweden.
