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 etc.
Visits to the research room at the House of Emigrants must be booked in advance. In the research room, you can use several of the larger databases.
Visits to the research room during which you carry out your own research are free of charge.
If you require help from our personnel with your research, the visit costs SEK 200 ($25).
If you want answers to research questions, each question costs SEK 400 ($50).
