A new book from Swedish Roots In Oregon (SRIO) entitled Swedish Oregon was published October 15, 2008. It is a volume that wants to shed light on Swedish Immigrants' experience - which has never been documented in a book previously - by trying to answer some of the following questions: Who were they? Where did they come from? What did they experience? How did their lives turn out?
This book is based on many years of research, and several wonderful photographs are included. It is presented in an estimated 300-pages soft cover book. The book follows a strong tradition of providing great wealth of fascinating information about our earlier generations of Swedes in Oregon.
Together we can make the Swedish - American immigrant experience a documented part of the history of Oregon's rich and diverse cultural Heritage.
Book order form can be found as a downloadable document at SRIO website, swedishrootsinoregon.org where you will find more information.
