Gena here: One of the great things about presenting on genealogy is that you often learn about new resources. So I thought I would share a resource with you that I learned more about yesterday.
Got Scandinavian ancestors? You might be interested in the Scandinavian Center at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.
