Hej, brave soul! Annika here.

If you’re tired of guessing

Building a reliable family tree is tricky. Which 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?

You want to discover what really happened

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.

There's another way

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

Even if...

  • You don’t speak or read Swedish.
  • You have little to no information on your ancestry in Sweden.
  • You have a persistent brick wall in the 1850s.
  • You are busy, busy, busy.

What if you understood your ancestor?

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 record says she died at 53 of ”old age.”

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

A word from a reader

Shortcut to Sweden has provided the insights into Swedish culture, language and history that I totally lacked but that are essential to understanding the genealogical information you uncover when researching Swedish ancestors.

Annika's knowledge of available online resources also opened up a whole new world of research opportunities that brought me closer to my research subjects.

Totally worth the price in savings of time and filling in knowledge gaps. Thank you!!
