Eslöv – Höör Genealogical and Folklore Association
Is a non-profit association located in the city of Eslöv, in southern Sweden.The association was founded on February 24, 1987, by a small group of enthusiastic amateur genealogists. The association operates in the municipalities of Eslöv and Höör, which are parts of the three districts Harjager, Frosta and Onsjö.
The main purpose of the association is to create:
a better contact and understanding between genealogists and folklore researchers
an interest in genealogy and folklore research among the local population
