Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
This is a compilation of information about my ancestors who came from Norway. After traveling to Norway in 1998 to visit relatives there for the first time, I became very interested in my geneology, and began my quest to find as many facts as I could. We have extensive family in the USA, and there are still many cousins living in Norway today. I began to study Norwegian so that I could interpret records in that country, and returned to Norway in 2004. I visited many of the farms on which family members had lived, looked at church and census records, and met with Steinar Vissebraaten in Nes, Hallingdal, who had a wealth of information from the church records in Nes. I am currently in the process of entering all of this information into my geneology program and will have it available here for you to read as soon as possible.
