Scandinavian Genealogical Research Center    Kim Melchior

Native Danish Researcher w. 30+ years experience in Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish Genealogical Research

I am a professional genealogist specializing in Scandinavian (Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish) research.

Most of my research is done at the world famous genealogical library maintained by the Family History Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Family History Library is the largest genealogical library in the world. The heart of the library's collection is approximately two million rolls of microfilmed records and more than 500,000 microfiche. The collection includes records kept by governments, churches of many denominations, other organizations, and individuals. These records include copies of church registers, census records, passenger lists, military records, land and probate records, just to mention a few. The library has a substantial collection of records for many areas of the world.

It is a lot more efficient to do Scandinavian research in Salt Lake City than in the Scandinavian archives because you have access to the microfilms from 8:00 AM until 9:00 PM, while for example in Denmark you are lucky if you can get more than 5-6 hours of effective research done during the daily business hours of the archive. Another reason it is more efficient is that you do not have to travel from one regional archive to another because all the records are in one location.

I do go on research trips to Denmark.

I also do genealogical seminars on Danish and Swedish research.

I do short one time projects as well as larger ongoing research projects. No project is too small or too large.

I do research for individuals and for large family organizations.

Searches and projects will be tailored to your specifications.
