Business in Sweden or Tokelau

the only thing missing on the web sites is a snail mail address and telephone number - pay no money until you have these


AFTER FINDING THREE, four, five, and in some cases six generations of ancestry in Sweden, some clients go on and try to find living relatives. Some clients actually only want to track down Swedish relatives. Finding living relatives can sometimes be a quite easy task, sometimes difficult, and sometimes almost impossible.

THE OUTCOME OF a search depends on from which region the immigrants came and if they moved around a lot before emigrating for America. As a rule is it always much easier to track down living relatives in rural districts than in the larger cities.

FOR FINDING LIVING relatives the Swedish Genealogy Company charges an hourly fee, but can also agree on a fixed fee. Then the price depends on the complexity of the case.

Swedgenco Sweden: Kerstin Jonmyren - Genealogy Professional Genealogist
Services: Swedish Genealogy Company (Swedgenco) focus on Swedish-American genealogy, and provides research services on the ancestry of Swedish-American immigrants.

AT EVERY ANNUAL congress of Sweden’s National Genealogy Society (Swedish: Svenska Släktforskarförbundet – SSF) people who have contributed to the Swedish genealogy movement are awarded with a diploma. This year (2002) at the congress in Borlänge the diploma was awarded to Kerstin Jonmyren for her “meritious contributions”. KERSTIN JONMYREN HAS been involved in the genealogy movement for about 25 years. For instance she was the co-founder and chairperson of the board of Kalmar’s Genealogy Society as well as founding member of the predecessor of Sweden’s National Genealogy Society. For the last couple of years she has also been vice chairperson and treasurer of Gotland’s Genealogy Society.

Swedgenco has the experience of quickly accessing and understanding almost all available sources in Sweden. Swedgenco also helps locating living relatives in Sweden. Translation services are also offered if required.

To provide a broader understanding of the immigrants' (and their ancestors) living conditions in Sweden the Swedgenco premium package includes a paper exceeding 20 pages on Sweden of the past.

site is not Swedish
but the New Zealand protectorate of the atolls of Tokelau

Government: "In November 1974 the administration of Tokelau was transferred from the Maori and Island Affairs Department to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs NZ.

From then until September 1980, when the Tokelau administration regulations were amended, the New Zealand Secretary of Foreign Affairs was the administrator of Tokelau. New regulations then came into force whereby the Minister of Foreign Affairs was empowered to appoint a suitable person to be the Administrator of Tokelau. The New Zealand flag is used and the anthem is God Save the Queen. Most of the powers of the administrator are delegated to Tokelau. As from 1 July 2004 the delegations will be with the 3 council of elders. See section on 'How is Tokelau Governed?'"

Unless it is expressly extended to Tokelau, New Zealand statute law does not apply to the territory. In practice, no New Zealand legislation is extended to Tokelau without Tokelauan consent. The villages have the statutory power to enact their own laws covering village affairs. International covenants on economic, social and cultural rights and civil and political rights, ratified by New Zealand in December 1978, apply in Tokelau.
Civil and criminal jurisdiction is exercised by commissioners and the New Zealand high court.

There are nine Tokelauan police officers - three each on Fakaofo, Nukunonu and Atafu. They are responsible to the village authorities for the enforcement of law and order and to the public service for their various civil duties. There is little crime apart from petty theft and there are no prisons. Punishment generally takes the form of public rebukes, fines or labour.

And under which jurisdiction are contracts on the internet controlled?

And where are the profits taxed?
