Lennart Setterdahl microfilmed the minutes and membership records of these churches, as well as all available issues of the newspapers. The microfilms of the newspapers are on file at the Rockford Public Library. The microfilms of the Rockford Swedish newspapers and church records are part of an extensive Swedish-American microfilm collection available for research at the Emigrant Institute in Växjö, Sweden, and the Swenson Swedish Immigration Research Center, Augustana College, Rock Island, IL, thanks largely to the efforts of Lennart Setterdahl, who traveled across the North American continent, inventorying and microfilming Swedish-American material and recording interviews with Swedish Americans along the way. .
