Imagine coming to an archives to simply scroll through old newspaper microfilm in hopes of reading your ancestor’s published articles but instead discovering an actual book from his personal library. That’s what happened to Phil Edstrom of Minneapolis when he came to the archives at North Park University last week. Here he could view the microfilmed issues of Gamla och Nya Hemlandet, a Chicago Swedish-American newspaper published from 1855 until it merged with Svenska Amerikanaren in 1914. Phil’s grandfather's brother, Aron Edström, served as editor of Hemlandet for some time in the early years of the 20th century and Phil hoped to find reference to him in the pages of the newspaper. Unfortunately, Hemlandet gave very few acknowledgments to its authors or editors.
