I needed some serious help

I needed some serious help in finding the Swedish roots of my grandfather who immigrated from Sweden in 1882.
Having tried to find these myself with no success, I contacted Yvonne Henriksson of Swedenroots for help.

With the little information that I could provide, Yvonne went to work and found my family structure in Sweden including my current extended relative base there.
In addition to identifying my “new” relatives in Sweden, Yvonne provided me with contact information which I have used.

My husband and I will be visiting Sweden this summer and the highlight of our trip will be to visit the ancestral home and meet some of my relatives. This was done in one month’s time which is outstanding!

Yvonne Henriksson is very easy to work with and an outstanding communicator.

Sincerely,

Caroline Andersson Kase
