Helping people find their Norwegian Roots



As a completely volunteer organization, we welcome and are grateful for donations. Cash donations and donations of books and or genealogical materials are the most useful. The reception desk at the Minnnesota Genealogy Center has a donation form. Any N-AGA board member can accept a donation by asking you to complete the form. A copy of the form will be given to the donor.
