DNA Research - being updated, more information to come

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.

Primarily for those of you looking for American matches and want to demystify an American ancestor. Not enough Swedish matches and few have family trees that can be of use.

If you are of European, or specifically Swedish, heritage and you want to find matches that will help you find out more about your Swedish ancestry.

This is also a good site to look for European or Swedish matches.

Pros and Cons of Analysing  your DNA-test

You will need a Family Tree

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.

Can you promise to find who I am looking for?

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.

So why should I do this?

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.

Patronymic naming

In Sweden the patronymic naming convention was used, a name derived from the name of a father or in some cases the mother, typically by the addition of a prefix or suffix, e.g., Johnsson, Andersdotter.
