Members and guests who wish to socialize prior to the chapter meeting can do so at 9:30 a.m. EDT with open microphones. Our business meeting will start at 9:45 a.m., followed by the presentation.

Greg Paris will present “Finding My Ne’er-do-well, Scoundrel Swedish Great-grandfather.”

My great-grandfather emigrated from Sweden to central Pennsylvania in the late 1800s, sired my grandmother, then disappeared — abandoning a young mother with an infant-in-arms, and leaving behind a puzzle. Who was he? Where did he go? Where did he come from? Why was he such a jerk?

A century-old family puzzle and brick wall, finally laid to rest — with the help of some DNA and ArkivDigital. A part of the larger story of one family’s journey: the diaspora from Alvsborg to the wilds of Pennsylvania.
