This is a MUST for the genealogist researching his or her Scandinavian ancestors in the USA and Europe. Dr. Dickson has identified numerous sources of family records for each of the 5 distinct Nordic groups—the Danes, Finns, Icelanders, Norwegians and Swedes. National repositories, local libraries, and regional historical societies are all listed, including contact information and suggestions on how best to utilize the materials available at each site. A selective bibliography of books pertaining to Scandinavian culture and history is also included to suggest further avenues for research. The author’s historical writing has been published in Scandinavian Review, The American Dane, The Finnish-American Newsletter, The Genealogical Helper, Heritage Quest and the Ancestry Newsletter. He is the grandson of Swedish immigrants.
