I recommend that you can post at the Sogn Og Fjordane query page, it is at ancestry, but you don't have to have a paid subscription to post, you do have to create a log-in and password.

(He has done quite a bit of work in the area of connecting the Norwegians from that area with their American 'cousins'. Oddvar Natvik has some email addresses online, which might still be current, this came from a page on the website: Oddvar Natvik - Prosjektleiar contact information: Telefon: 57 65 64 05 Mobil : 415 30 962 Epost : email@example.com Ths is the contact information for the Sogn og Fjodane county archives website in general, their address and contact information. Email is probably the best way. Fylkesarkivet i Sogn og Fjordane, Askedalen 2 6863 Leikanger Norway Tlf +47 57 65 61 00 - Fax +47 57 65 61 01 email: firstname.lastname@example.org You can also post details here about who your ancestors are, and genealogy searchers here can help you find the farms, and possibly the relatives there today. Destination Stryn and Nordfjord has a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/#!/StrynNordfjord They also have a website, it's a tourist website: http://www.nordfjord.no/en/ABOUT-THE-REGION/Tourist-Information-Offices/http://www.nordfjord.no/en/ABOUT-THE-REGION/Tourist-Information-Offices/ The contact information is this: Contact details Destination Stryn & Nordfjord Tinggt. 3, NO-6783 Stryn, Norway Tel. +47 57 87 40 40 Fax +47 57 87 40 41 E-mail: email@example.com Booking: +47 57 87 40 53 firstname.lastname@example.org
