    Description: Fieldwork materials collected in North America during a 1971 research trip.

The collection has been digitised and includes photographs, audio tapes (oral histories in Swedish), emigrant lists and newspaper clippings, as well as a travel journal. Many women were interviewed about their migration experiences, and oral recordings of these interviews can be accessed online.
