Emigrant research

The Swedish Emigrant Institute’s research service only responds to questions that can be related to emigration. For questions relating to family history in general and which don’t relate to emigration, a number of digital databases are available, such as Ancestry, ArkivDigital, the Digital Research Room (previously SVAR), myheritage.se and many more.

Research room opening hours

The research room is open on weekdays, only booked visits. To make sure there is an opportunity to do research, book your visit in the form below.

The exhibition “The Dream of America” is closed. In the autumn of 2020, a new exhibition about migration will open at the House of Emigrants, replacing Dream of America.
