    I’m the archivist for the Vasa Order of America National Archives, a Swedish-American fraternal organization, in Bishop Hill, IL. I’m reaching out to you in an effort to attract more researchers to our collections. I recognize that I may have contacted the wrong person and ask that you forward my email.

    I’m reaching out to you because we have information on a lodge(s) that was in your area. You can find a link to our collections on our website. https://www.vasaarchives.org/online-collections

    The Vasa Order has lodges across the US, Canada, and Sweden. Many of them have disbanded over the years. Our Finding Aid, online collections and guide to the Lennart Setterdahl Oral History Collection is also on the webpage. We invite you to take a look and share this resource with your researchers, social media, newsletters, etc.
