The enthusiasm for the 300-page book was high and the books were flying off the table, most of them signed by Lars Nordström, who compiled and edited the book.

Lars Nordström was a good leader in the preparation of the book, but everyone at SRIO (Swedish Roots In Oregon) had various roles to play in editing, translations, chapter preparations and sharing a bit of family history background for the book. It was a team effort.
A major part of the funding for the book came from three grant sources: The Swedish Council of America, Swedish Society of Linnea, and the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation whose gifts account for about half the cost of production
