Walking Tour of the Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery

Minneapolis's oldest cemetery has a long and storied past. Susan Hunter-Weir has devoted years to researching the people buried there, learning how their stories reflect the times in which they lived, and how those stories influence the Minneapolis in which we now live. Susan will present a lecture in our classroom, then lead people to the cemetery
(two blocks from Ingebretsen's to E. Lake Street and Cedar Avenue) for a one-hour walking tour.
She will also show you how to access burial records if you want to do your own research.
Please wear comfortable shoes. The walk isn't strenuous, but the ground is uneven. $5

Alt for Sverige (The Great Swedish Adventure) for an informative,
but relaxed, introductory class on exploring your Swedish genealogy.
Janis will give you the basics on how to start your fascinating journey. But most important, she will help you avoid the common pitfalls that can cost you hours of wasted research time. You will learn how to navigate the basics of ancestry.com, exploring both the helpful and the misleading attributes. You will see how the ancestry DNA project has helped in the pursuit of genealogical knowledge. We will learn how to cross reference with other sources so you can build a well-sourced tree. You will also take an exciting peek into the fascinating Lund Archives, now fully accessible online. Janis will alight your passion for genealogy, storytelling and mystery solving,
so come find the magic in your family history!
Students are welcome to bring tablets or laptops with their own built in internet but connection, but Janis advises you to not start your free two-week membership at ancestry.com until right before class.
