About me

I, Yvonne Dider (b. 1972) am a native Swede with roots both in the south and north of Sweden - but now living nearby Stockholm.

I've been passionate about genealogical research for some 25 years.

I've got relatives in the US and also in Canada. (These relatives are decendants to cousins, brothers and sisters of my maternal grandmother and -father and paternal greatgrandfather).
My husband also have many relatives "over there" and we are all very pleased with having reached out to them.

Professionally, I have a profound background being university trained and then worked for several years as an officer in the Swedish Airforce.
I have also been working for a decade as Security manager at the Swedish Royal Court. 
At the Royal Court, I've also been in charge of the business with guided tours on dailybasis at the Royal Palace, the Treasury, the Tre Kronor Museum and the Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities.

Before working for more than a decade at the Swedish Royal Court and somewhat during my time in the Swedish Airforce, I was also studying arthistory, building conservation and architecture etc for several years at the University of Lund (founded in 1666), where I took my second university degree, the Diploma in Arts.

Over the years - in both practical genealogical work and by studying at the university - I've learned a lot about for example both paleography and archive knowledge.
