Jewish Scandinavian Ancestry #scandinavia


Vivienne Marks
 

Hi,
I am new to this site and am wondering if you could help me. I have a
Swedish friend who would like to look into her genealogy in order to
determine whether she is halachically Jewish.
I am wondering if Church records of conversions (baptisms) are possiible
to research. Her ancestors came >from Denmark to Norway and Sweden
during the 17th and 18th centuries.
Some of their surnames are: LEMWIG; BRINK; BRINCH; BIRCHEROD;
(Melchior)GLUCKSTAD; WIEL; GEDDE; SAMSING.
I have looked without success for these names on jewishgen.org data bases.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
