Have you been wondering about that mystery ancestor you can't find or do you want to know more about your Swedish heritage? Sometimes finding a Swedish ancestor in Sweden using his emigrant name can be close to impossible as his foreign name may have been altered so much we don't know what he was called in Sweden before emigrating, or his name was so common it is impossible to sort him out from the rest.
When this is the case, a DNA-test can be the next step to help identify your ancestor. As a Professional Genealogist with experience in both traditional genealogical research as well as DNA research based on a DNA-test I can help you interpret your results as well as work out any mysteries you may be faced with. To better understand the basics of a DNA-test
On the right are the following companies supplying DNA-tests for genealogical purposes to find living relatives. There are others as well but FamilyTreeDNA and MyHeritage are the ones I usually use when working. I am not sponsered by them but like the usability and tools that they provide. But primarily if you want to connect with Swedish relatives or find a missing Swedish ancestor you need to go where they can be found, they offer this.

Because the Family Tree will be used as a reference, to help sort what we do know from what we don't know. The further back the Family tree goes the better. If you don't have a tree I can make it for you or if you have one I can go through it for you to make sure we are pointed in the right direction.
I am afraid I cannot promise you we will find who you are looking for because there are several factors that need to come togehter.
When you receive the result of you DNA-test you will have a list of matches, other people who have done a DNA-test as well. With the help of their Family Trees we can connect you to those who are known and with that we can eliminate them. By eliminating them we see who is not identifiable, possibly someone pointing us in the direction of your unknown/missing/hard to find relative.
If we don't try we won't know.
Even if we can't find him/her now every day new matches are added to your list and this may be what is needed to find whoever you are looking for.
