Most welcome to our Slimminge Site maintained
by the non-profit organization "Byalaget" ("Village Society").
Slimminge is a very small, but lovely, village situated on the hills of Romeleåsen, a tiny ridge covered with green fields, meadows, grazing cows and horses.
Slimminge is mentioned in early scripts from the 15th century. So naturally there ought to be a lot of ancestors to former Slimminge Villagers spread throughout the world. We are eager to get in touch and share old photos, memories and letters.

We are still selling the books so please let us know if you want us to send them to you (Books only in swedish).
