I’m Annika, a Swedish genealogist, member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and the owner of Find a Swede. I research Swedish emigrants in great detail and provide the necessary context so that you can learn more about your Swedish roots.
Maybe you are here because you are looking for a genealogist to research your Swedish ancestors to understand why they left. Maybe you are here to learn about genealogy methodology in Sweden. Maybe you are here for fillable ancestry chart templates. Whatever brought you here, thanks for stopping by.

I also have a great Swedish genealogy newsletter for you.
Every other week I publish a newsletter with tips on Swedish genealogy that can help you research your Swedish family history.
You’d be amazed at how much information there is available in the records, and in these biweekly emails I will help you find the right places to look and how to get most out of them. I will also share with you the things you can’t find in the records, the context that makes it relatable.
Just click the button below and put your address in the box to get these tips delivered right to your inbox! If you use this button you will also get the free guide Four Steps to Remember a Swedish Ancestor, so that you can start researching your migrant ancestor in Sweden.
