Testimonials from successful projects
"It has been a pleasure to work with Johan over the last several months. Because of his knowledge and skill in ancestry research, he was able to quickly locate the information I requested about my grandmother who had emigrated from Sweden to the USA with her family in 1891. But going further, Johan was able find several relatives still living in and around the Skane area of Sweden. Again, with Johan's assistance, I was able to contact many of these relatives and arrange for a "reunion". I just got back from Sweden a few days ago after experiencing a wonderful visit with many of them!! It was an incredible feeling to make this connection with long-lost family members and to know that we don't have to remain separated any longer. All thanks to Johan! "

"My Swedish great grandparents each emigrated to the United States in the 1870’s. They did not know each other until they met at a dance. They settled in Boston, Massachusetts and raised seven children. When researching my ancestors I was unable to find out where in Sweden they came from. Then one day, Johan contacted me asking about my great grandfather, how accurate was my information. Johan was doing research for another person and my great grandfather happened to be the missing link. Johan was able to connect me with a branch of my Swedish family! I was overwhelmed! My great grandmother always went by a nick name so I did not even know her real name. Johan was able to research both my great grandfather and great grandmother back several generations for me. He provided the information to me within a few weeks. I am completely satisfied with his work and am forever grateful for his help. I now know where my family came from and I have Swedish cousins!"

"I had been seeking my Swedish ancestor side for years. I was stuck with my great-grandparents. I couldn’t find where in Sweden they came from. I had some facts on when they came to America, but didn’t know anything beyond that. My grandfather was Swedish, but his parents died when he was young, so no one in the family knew much about his parents except their names and their date of birth and death. I found my Swedish ancestors through Johan Gronberg’s Swedish Ancestry genealogist site. Just to see the names and places my Swedish ancestors lived at, and especially their names was a great joy for me. I am totally satisfied with his services, and I recommend his company to anyone who is seeking to find out about their ancestors. A happy client Lindahl King—17% Swedish according to DNA."

"We recently had the best time with Johan! We had hired him to look into our Swedish history and he was able to find a lot of information quickly. All information was sourced and his prices were very reasonable. He even showed us around our old homestead and took us to local churches were the family members attended. Thank you Johan. It really meant a lot to us. #5/5 Stars"

I was thrilled with the results, and would highly recommend him for any swedish project. He explained the names of the parishes, and regions, otherwiswe I would not have had a clue. It was a pleasure!"

"My sister and I found Johan’s site on the internet when researching someone to help us on our quest to find out more about our Swedish family. My sister and I were both new to genealogy and Johan was wonderful with using the information that we had already obtained to help us with our search. We asked a lot of questions, and he was very kind to answer all of them for us in a very timely manner. Johan walked us through every step. We knew exactly who and what he was researching and the cost before he began. When the research was delivered we had the opportunity to review, ask any questions before Johan sent the invoice. We would highly recommend Johan for your genealogy adventure."

"Johan was recommended to me by a cousin. He translated 2 inventory estates and sent photos of the original documents. He was also able to answer some general questions I had about these relatives. I was very impressed by his professionalism and especially the speed with which he delivered results. I felt his price was very reasonable, and I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to others."

"Dear Johan, We will be forever grateful for the results of your research. Your research went many steps past whatever I did. Johan solved the mystery of why there was no record of my grandpas immigration to the states (involved a name chain) and the reasons why. I can't recommend Johan highly enough! He is most efficient and produces results quickly. All the best to you, Johan."
