“You and your colleagues gave us breakthrough results in our search for Johanna’s parents and grandparents. You also helped build our understanding in a number of areas (Norwegian naming customs, language & history-as well as resources such as the Norwegian Digital Archives). All of this, thanks to you, has greatly increased our ability to work independently in further research on Billie’s Norwegian family tree.”

- Jim & Billie (Maryland)

“Thank you very much for the photos! I, and the rest of the group, loved to be at the Naeseth Library. Wish we could have more time for searching in your archives. I returned to Norway in the afternoon yesterday. The rest of our trip was enjoyable too, and I think the moments I will remember forever is our visit to the Library, my meeting with Kelvin, the concert on the Capitol Square in Madison, Nordic Fest in Decorah and when we met Ph. D. Odd Lovoll at St. Olaf College in Northfield.  Thank you for a very interesting visit at Naeseth Library.”

- Oddny (Norway)
