Staff from ArkivDigital, in Sweden, visited Zion in May to photograph our historical records. The ArkivDigital database provides online access to high-quality images of Swedish record collections, and is expanding into Swedish-American collections from congregations like Zion. This project will make it easier to learn about the families who came from Värmland and Dalarna in Sweden, and later other places, to settle in Wright County and start the Carlslund and Swedesburg congregations which became Zion.
Once they are processed, the images will be available online to ArkivDigital subscribers (they also have occasional free weekends). If you are interested in learning how to access records through ArkivDigital, check out the free Swedish Genealogy Workshop, held periodically at the Wright County Historical Society.
