Tidningen (pronounced teed-ning-en), translates to “the newspaper,” and is the quarterly newsletter of the Swedish Genealogical Society of Minnesota. The masthead includes both the U.S. and Swedish flags and a sailing ship representing the ocean voyage of our ancestors when they came to America. It provides information about society meetings and news, other Swedish heritage events, and articles that educate and entertain in the areas of Swedish culture, heritage, history and researching your Swedish roots.
We have provided a sample issue so that you can judge for yourself the value of Tidningen. Members can access all Tidningen issues from 1997 to today in the Members Area or Join SGSM for access.
Tidningen welcomes contributions of genealogical significance, as well as letters to the editor and genealogical queries. If you would like to write an article, see submission guidelines to give you some ideas. Our members and especially your family will appreciate that you took the time to share your stories. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with contributions, ideas, questions or requests for more information.
