        This book presents new empirical findings about Germanic heritage varieties spoken in North America: Dutch, German, Pennsylvania Dutch, Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish, West Frisian and Yiddish, and varieties of English spoken both by heritage speakers and in communities after language shift. The volume focuses on three critical issues underlying the notion of ‘heritage language. The Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center (located at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL) is a national library and archives providing resources for the study of Swedish immigration to North America. We also help people research their Swedish-American genealogy.

      Sweden and the Swedish heritage in the 'New World' --ch. John Hanson: America's first president -- ch. Scandinavian immigrants and the slavery issue -- ch. New Sweden Cultural Heritage Society was chartered in for the purpose of sharing, promoting, strengthening and maintaining our Swedish culture and heritage. We accomplish this through a variety of events and activities. New Sweden produces two traditional events- the August crayfish party- Kraftskiva, and the Lucia Fest in December.

      The following is a list of notable Swedish Americans. Including both original immigrants who obtained American citizenship and their American descendants. To be included in this list, the person must have a Wikipedia article showing they are Swedish American or must have references showing they are Swedish American and are notable. Dr, Peter Craig's book, The Census of Swedes on the Delaware, is a "must have book" for anyone who wants to learn about the founding fathers of New Sweden Colony and wants documented information about these early settlers.
