Are you a Viking on paper or just at heart?


The Natural History Museum of Utah is inviting Utahns to explore their Nordic ancestry with expert help from FamilySearch specialists.

Many Utahns have deep ties to Scandinavia.  And visitors to the museum, especially those with Peterson, Larson, Jensen or any other Scandinavian name will be able to discover if they’re related to a Viking through a hands-on opportunity to research their family history.

The event is happening on Wednesday, July 19 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.

4:00 – 8:00p.m. – Nordic specialists from FamilySearch will have computers set up to help guests look into their own family history. Guests can also explore the lives of their Scandinavian ancestors in the Vikings exhibit 

5:30 – 6:00p.m. – Geoff Morris, Nordic Specialists for FamilySearch, to speak on Scandinavian history and genealogy.

The Natural History Museum of Utah at the Rio Tinto Center, is located at  301 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, Utah.  Guests who mention the FamilySearch event will receive a $2.00 discount off a general admission ticket at the ticket counter.  The FamilySearch event is included with admission.
