The style of the book makes you feel like a couple of master genealogists just allowed you to tag along and see how its done. They include a fast reference list of Swedish words and abbreviations you need. They also have a section on finding living relatives and planning a trip to Sweden. Bottom line is that this is one of two must-have books on Swedish ancestry and it is the first and most important book of the two for that undertaking. The second book would be Cradled in Sweden.
One foot note, Swedish records are so far superior to doing research in the U.S. Once you get past the translation of basic record headings, and finally grasp the unusual naming system, and the record system, the records are amazing. Once you link to Sweden you are likely to be able to go back to 1700 with little problem and if you are just a little lucky maybe to 1600 or earlier. Also, everyone in Sweden under 50 years old reads and speaks English well. An indispensable asset is AnbytarForum at [...] God bless these remarkably helpful people for their unselfish help to total strangers.
If you have Swedish ancestry and are trying to interpret original Swedish records, this book is a valuable tool, and in my book, a must for your genealogical library!
