President’s Letter

Rebecca Bromley was our speaker at our 3 March 2021 meeting via Zoom. The presentation began with a brief video of the Kalmar Nyckel, a Swedish ship carrying Swedish settlers to North America in 1638 to establish the colony of New Sweden. Relationship with the native Lanape tribe were good and the island of Mahattan was purchased from the native Americans for $24. Renovation of the New Sweden Farmstead Museum in Printz Park, Tinicum, Pennsylvania, was completed in and opened to the public in 2019.

On April 3, 2021, Kristi Sexton will be speaking to us on “Hide and Seek with Family Search: Teaching Tools Using The Wiki, catalog and Records Aspects of Family Search”. We hope you will join us.
