- The Gyllenhaal Family Tree Project was begun in the summer of 1996 for the purpose of gathering as much information as possible about the history of the Gyllenhaal family. To date most of the research efforts have been in the area of the early history of the family, from its origins in 17th century Sweden until around the turn of the 20th century in both Sweden and America. This work has been a collaborative effort between the Swedish and American sides of the family. Happily the two sides have been able to meet face to face several times in both Sweden and the U.S.A., with some "field work" being done together in Stockholm and Västergötland.
- The Gyllenhaal Family Tree Project Database includes more than 2700 individuals, including all the Gyllenhaals listed in Gustaf Elgenstierna's 1927 edition of Svenska Adelns Åttartavlor, and all known Gyllenhaals living in Sweden and the U.S.A.
An archive of "Gyllenhaaliana" is being compiled in the U.S.A. Any photographs, letters, or other pertinent documents would be gratefully accepted for preservation in the archive. (Photocopies, preferably on acid-free paper, are fine.) If you would like to contribute material, or would like to know more about the archive, please contact us at the address below for more information.
- The Gyllenhaal Family Tree Project Web site has been available since the summer of 1996, and has led to many useful contacts with relatives and others interested in the family's history.
