Find your Swedish Ancestors Podcast – episode 5

Hello,

In this episode I talk about All Saints Day that is celebrated in Sweden today, November 5. We go to the cemeteries and light candles remembering our loved ones.

On November 6 it is Gustaf Adolf Day in Sweden. In memory of king Gustaf II Adolf who died on that day in 1632.

Second Sunday in November we celebrate fathers day.

In episode 1, I talked about the Swedish Gravestone inventory and I also made a videotutorial on a couple of searches in that database. The video is found on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpgijQPPGX8

  2. finngraven.se
  3. svenskagravar.se
  4. hittagraven.se
