“Thank you SO much, Dana, for your valuable assistance and kindness! I learned much, and was able to ‘gather my thoughts’ to begin to put my grandmother's story to paper. That was exactly what I was hoping to get out of the class.”

- Susan (Wisconsin)

“Dear Ms. Culbertson, Thank you for all the wonderful research you did for our family. It's fascinating to see the copies of those old documents. Someday I hope to go to Arendal, which from the pictures I've seen, looks so beautiful. Thank you again!”

- Heidi (New York)

“Here is my payment for the work done by Solveig. It’s been a pleasure working with you and your great folks. My son in law and family, especially his 93 year old grandmother, are thrilled with all the great results.”

- Ken (GA)

“Thanks for the wonderful translations, Solveig! I would indeed appreciate an email with the translations, so I can share them with relatives.”

- David (Illinois)

“Dear Jerry, Thank you for your research and report on Johanne Vostad. This is exactly what I was hoping to learn, and with such interesting detail on the events in Christiania.”

- Michael (Montana)

“Dear Carol, Wow-what a find.......  This was both a blind-sided joy that you completed the circle of information that I had sought for more than 30 years and the information that must have been a very difficult secret to keep for my great grandmother's entire life. Congratulations for your effort and ingenuity in solving this puzzle for me. Enclosed is a check to cover the cost of your research. Thank you a thousand times for your find. I am at ease now to know this link to my past.”

- Robert (Illinois)

“…if it wasn’t for the time that you folks took to introduce me to the Norwegian Digitalarkivet and Norway’s rich heritage of bygdebøks, our ancestry would never have been so rich and full of adventure-and for that I am most appreciative.”

- Don (Michigan)

“I want to thank Carol Culbertson her research on John Olson. I do believe she found the correct person in the area in Pennsylvania where he appears to have resided.”

- Janet (Maryland)

“I can't begin to tell you how much it meant that both Jerry and John took time from their busy schedule and work to help in the search for Knud (a family member I've been searching for since almost my beginnings in researching my own family!). What a gift to receive this information! Words don't express what's in my heart. Please tell Jerry and John what their research has meant to not only me, but my children and their children. Enclosed is the promised donation I want to give as a thank you for Jerry and John's exceptional work. Thank you!”

- Ardie (Minnesota)

“Carol, Thank you again for the great research you did on my norwegian ancestors.”
