“Pinpointing the Location of Your Family's Farm in Norway”

Plan now to take part in NAGA’s next genealogy seminar at the Minnesota Genealogy Center. Our focus will be on moving beyond U.S. records to use resources that are in and about Norway. We’ll focus especially on Norway’s digitized national archives (digitalarkivet.no) and the website norwayparishes.com.

“Using Norwegian Church Books and Farm Books”

Church records and farm histories (bygdebøker) are some of the best sources available for doing Norwegian genealogy. In this seminar, we'll show you how to use these records and introduce you to the Norwegian vocabulary and translations that can help you decipher them. We'll also talk about cultural traditions reflected in the records—they contain more than just names and dates!.
