New Legacy Quick Guide: Swedish Genealogy by Ralph Kjellgren - “The Swedish emigration to America started in the early 19th century. At the end of the 1860s, Sweden experienced bad harvests due to weather conditions. This, in combination with religious intolerance, calling ups for military services, high population growth and poverty, resulted in more than more than 1.5 million Swedes emigrating to America after the US Civil War. In the US 1880 Census, the number of “svensk-amerikaner” (Americans of Swedish descent) was about 800,000. Around 1900 Chicago had the second largest Swedish population of any city in the world; only Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, had more.” The Swedish Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide™ contains valuable research strategy to help you find your Swedish ancestors.

Genealogy Blogging Beat – Monday, 26 September 2016

Sept 26, 1969. This popular sitcom starred Robert Reed as widower Mike Brady, who has three sons and is married to Carol (played by Florence Henderson), who has three daughters. Housekeeper Alice was played by Ann B. Davis. Sons Greg (Barry Williams), Peter (Christopher Knight) and Bobby (Mike Lookinland) and daughters Marcia (Maureen McCormick), Jan (Eve Plumb) and Cindy (Susan Olsen) experienced the typical crises of youth. The program steered clear of social issues and portrayed childhood as a time of innocence. The last episode was telecast on Aug 30, 1974. The program continues to be popular in reruns, and there were also many spin-offs: a cartoon, a variety series, a sitcom, a short-lived dramatic series and films.
