The SAL Blog

Working on the website

The website was started in 1998, when my sons and I needed some kind of activity during a rainy summer week. Since then the website has developed into a huge portal and resource about an important part of 20th century shipping and Swedish corporate history. The site also plays a central part in my interest in the Swedish - American heritage.

My dad, whom emigrated from Sweden in June of 1947, and I went to the Midsummer festival in 2007 and had a great time. It's a great town and he sure had his fill of fish and other Swedish delicacies. I highly recommend this outing.
