N-AGA assists members with family history research. We actively collect and reference materials for the Norwegian collection stored at the MGS Genealogy Library, 1185 Concord Street North, Suite 218, South St. Paul, Minnesota. The Norwegian collection has many history finding aids, maps, bygdeboker (community histories), Norwegian passenger lists, Rowberg obituary files, Norwegian genealogical periodicals and family histories. If you own Norwegian genealogical materials, please consider donating at any time to our library. The MGS library staff will help you with any questions.
