Tuesday's Tip - Facebook Groups

There are several groups on Facebook where you can get help with your genealogy. Here are some of them:

Swedish/American People Search - for people in Sweden who are looking for American relatives or the other way around.

My ancestors are from ... - groups for people with relatives in sertain provinces.
Gotland: https://www.facebook.com/groups/84822331585/?fref=ts
Halland: https://www.facebook.com/groups/121908984681238/?fref=ts
Östergötland: https://www.facebook.com/groups/479976045404659/?fref=ts
Smålan: https://www.facebook.com/groups/479976045404659/?fref=ts
Södermanland: https://www.facebook.com/groups/141378232718549/?fref=ts
Västergötland: https://www.facebook.com/groups/141378232718549/?fref=ts
Blekinge: https://www.facebook.com/groups/598330630185601/?fref=ts
Skåne: https://www.facebook.com/groups/454687791291908/
Bohuslän: https://www.facebook.com/groups/161847587319694/
Värmland: https://www.facebook.com/groups/388618994592285/
Uppland: https://www.facebook.com/groups/581359428552089/
Medelpad: https://www.facebook.com/groups/439414042821583/

These are just a few of them. Just search on facebook for "My ancestors are from" and the province or county you are looking for.

Another set of groups are the "Kyrkor och Kyrkogårdar i" - "Churches and Graveyards in". Here you can find pictures of churches and headstones. You can also ask for a specific stone and a person who lives close by or knows the graves well can give you more information.
Example: Östergötland - https://www.facebook.com/groups/315131595296678/?fref=ts

There are of course more groups in Swedish but Swedes are generally rather good at English.
