Do not miss this book if you are planning a trip to Sweden. This book will definitely help sketch out for you what your trip should be about. Then you can go ahead and buy a travel book for the details of surviving and getting around.
But the main focus of the book is tracing your Swedish ancestry through the different available sources. All the other stuff works to support you in your research. There are examples of how to find and use the church records, locations that now have them available on microfiche, other possible sources of information, and up-to-date web references. And it's all presented in a useful, readable, and quotable style. You may even find yourself talking out loud in Swedish as you read what the different church records may have recorded to keep track of the people. I have gone through this book twice on my own, and even now, I still read parts out loud to impress my friends with my Swedish heritage.
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!
