Utbildning / examen


  - Family research
A separate page in English for my Family research with a few lists in English of my family research. Also see the pages with family photos since they should be quite understandable also without knowledge in Swedish.
The Swedish family pages also contains lists, presentations and more, and also separate pages about Gyön (Bräkne-Hoby, Blekinge) and Lindhult (Habo, outside of Jönköping). I also have memberships on the DNA-sites 23andMe and FamilyTreeDNA.
  - Dancing
Different couple dances like the ten dances, bugg and folk dances. I dance socially and give private lessons in dancing. Earlier on I have given regular dance courses for Chalmers Dance Society (2007-2012) and competed, mostly in the standard dances (2004-2011).    Marikas dance school
