Are there any web sites in Sweden similar to Swedish Gen Forum who might help one locate part of our family who stayed in Sweden? One part of my family stayed in Sweden and I am trying to locate to see if there is anyone in that family in Sweden who has an interest in history. I have found one person in that family in Sweden but they have no interest in history. When I wrote them they say the information I am asking about is too long ago.

Also could someone tell me what the system was called that allowed the oldest children in the family to inherit most of the family wealth. In so many cases in big Swedish families if you were 8th or 9th born in the family you could not expect to get anything from the parents so you might as well start a new life in America. How did that system work? What was it called.
