Dalesburg Lutheran Church and Svardsjo Parish Church, Dalarna Province, Sweden

In 1993, a sister congregation relationship was created between Dalesburg Lutheran and the State Church Congregation in Svardsjo Parish, Dalarna Province, Sweden. Many of the first Swedes to come to Dalesburg, came from Svardsjo, beginning in the later 1860’s. The relationship fosters an opportunity to learn about contemporary congregational life in both congregations through exchanges of materials and visits, and offers an opportunity for family history research for individuals on both sides of the Atlantic who have ancestry from Svardsjo
