The Swedish emigration to America started in the early 19th century. At the end of the 1860s, Sweden experienced bad harvests due to weather conditions. This, in combination with religious intolerance, calling ups for military services, high population growth and poverty, resulted in more than more than 1.5 million Swedes emigrating to America after the US Civil War.
In the US 1880 Census, the number of “svensk-amerikaner” (Americans of Swedish descent) was about 800,000. Around 1900 Chicago had the second largest Swedish population of any city in the world; only Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, had more.

To be successful in your West Virginia research, you must first begin with the state of Virginia. West Virginia may be known as the northernmost southern state, or the southernmost northern state. With the land originally belonging to Virginia, heightened feelings during the American Civil War, along with the decision to not secede from the Union separated fifty counties from Virginia. The state of West Virginia was created 20 Jun 1863, and is known as “The Mountain State”, for good reason.
