Abstract [en]

While genealogy is a practice occupied with questions of roots and belonging, it is also concerned with tracing ancestors outside of national borders. Notions of belonging to history and culture are highlighted through international migration. What does belonging mean for individuals who has historical and contemporary family spread over different countries? How are notions of belonging negotiated in the meeting of different national identities? And how are these processes mediated through genealogy, a project occupied with tracing common bloodlines? This article explores these questions through the case of Swedish-American genealogy. More specifically, it analyzes how this genealogy is represented on contemporary television through the popular TV-show Allt för Sverige
