 "You all possess a wealth of knowledge and background experience which makes this Center such a valuable national resource."            John Arneson, Stoughton Wisconsin


"Dear Jerry, Thank you so much for your guidance & wisdom last week. I thoroughly enjoyed our time at NAGC and learned so much from you. It was exciting to learn about Ole & Anna and to know that the gravestone at Norway Grove Cemetary is indeed that of my great great grandparents. It is so good to know that I can contact you for help as I try to uncover more information about my ancestors!"      Judy O.


"Dear Solveig, I was so excited to get your package with all the information I asked for and then some. You are awesome and I tell everyone I know at the Family History Center about your careful and professional work in Norwegian genealogy. Thank you for the copies of records & the family home picture. I will be sure to give my aunt a copy too, as I know she will be thrilled to have it."                      KP
