  • Help with Sweden?

    Our project's present goal is to locate and obtain the cooperation for DNA testing of a European "Atterborn" in an attempt to find a possible Old World common ancestor/surname precursor for our apparently Anglicized, "Arterburn."

    So far, I've located a few Atterborns in Swedish phone listings, but no where else. As administrator, I feel compelled to pursue the prospect of testing, since we have no other leads, but am concerned about language and/or cultural barriers that might prejudice my own attempts to make contact and obtain cooperation.

    Unfortunately, we don't have any Swedish-American friends or contacts. Would anyone out there be in a position to offer help or referrals or suggestions?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
