    Scandinavian Family Research - Seonaid Lewis

    Scandinavian Family Research - Seonaid Lewis

    Welcome back to HeritageTalks.

    Today’s talk is presented by Auckland Libraries’ family historian Seonaid Lewis.

    The presentation focuses on researching ancestry across the Scandinavian countries including Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway. While the talk provides some searching sources specific to this area, others can be used for family history research generally.

    If the talk inspires to go further with your research, you can visit Research Central at the Central Library or book a time to speak one to one with a librarian. You can do this through Auckland libraries website.
