The research room

In the research room study conducted both day and night. Every Monday met a group of genealogists. A popular meeting place where knowledge and experiences are shared



The Genealogy Society sat up and published a forum in March 2009 for genealogists on both sides of The Torne (river). The purpose is that all genealogists and interested will be able to report inquiries for, ask questions and make replies about old ancestors. Family connections in Tornedalen between Sweden and Finland are as you know very large. Our Genealogy Society opens up especially good opportunities to find your own Tornedalian roots. The forum demands membership but is all for free.
