The words "No family history" mean just that: no genealogy research will be conducted. Anyone contacting the Emigrant Research Center in Växjö is being referred to the Emigranternas Hus in Göteborg.
The good years when busloads of tourists came to the House of Emigrants on Vilhelm Moberg street in Växjö are over. For more than 40 years, many people from America and elsewhere came and searched their roots. Now the Culture Park Småland AB (owned by Kronoberg County Council and the City of Växjö) has taken over all exhibition activities. House of Emigrants has become a practice room for musicians with exhibits about anything but emigration: tattoos and vampires, says Lars Hansson.
Details are available (in Swedish) on the Emigrant Research Center's web site at http://hd.se/familj/slaktforskning/2012/12/27/har-ar-den-nya-arenan-for-migrationsforskning/.
A rather good Google English translation of that web page is available at http://goo.gl/oMQjU.
My thanks to newsletter reader Annelie Jonsson for telling me about this announcement.
