ET Genealogi - SAG Workshop Staff

The SAG Workshop Staff

This was the 2003 SAG research staff, but there have been changes.

In this picture we see Priscilla Sorknes, Ulla Sköld, Elisabeth Thorsell, Chris Olsson, Karna Olsson, and Jill Seaholm.

The 2013 staff consisted of:

  • Mike Swanson, archivist from North Dakota, has been a member of the SAG group for years, and started on the staff in 2012, and we are happy to have him with us!

  • Dave Garner, Jill's husband and Operations Manager of WVIK Public Radio in Rock Island, IL.

  • Priscilla Sorknes, of Minneapolis, is a Swedish-Norwegian with years of experience in doing Scandinavian research.

  • Ingrid Nilsson, of Trelleborg, Sweden, a highly experienced genealogist, specialising in Skåne records.

  • Jill Seaholm, of Rock Island, Illinois, who is now the organizer of the SAG Workshop. She is the genealogist of the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center in Rock Island, and works with Swedish records on a daily basis.

  • Elisabeth Thorsell, of Järfälla, Sweden, is the Editor of Swedish American Genealogist and has also done research for Swedish Americans for more than 35 years.

    The Olsson siblings left the SAG Workshop in 2008, and we miss them, but the show must go on.

  • Chris Olsson, of Stockton Springs, Maine, not only has the advantage of being the son of Nils William Olsson, he is also an eminent researcher in Swedish records.

  • Karna Olsson, of Belfast, Maine, is the sister of Chris Olsson, a graphic artist and a budding researcher. She was from 1999 to 2007 the organizer of the SAG Workshops.
