“Our Sons of Norway Lodge appreciates and supports your mission to provide genealogical research and information. We recognize the importance of this work to the Norwegian-American community as well as to Norwegians themselves. And you do it very, very well. I know from personal experience that your staff is amazing.”

“Your information was in the afternoon mail. I will gratefully mail a check tomorrow. Thank you so much. The 1844 date for Daniel’s date of birth was passed down from family members. You have the correct man. I loved this search but ran into a brick wall! Finding you was just awesome! Thank you so much. I am definitely interested in continuing this genealogy search as funds permit.”

“Carol, Thank you for your research and documentation on Simen and his family traveling to the U.S., and the Westby area church history. I appreciate all your help.”

“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)

“Today I received the research from Carol Culbertson concerning my great-great grandfather Ole Omlid. Tell her I’m very pleased with the results. I had suspected they were members of Greenfield Lutheran Church but had no proof-now I do. I understand his passenger list was not found, but apparently this is a period where a lot is missing, so I understand. In any case, I am very happy with the information.”

- Chris (Washington)

“Dear Carol, Thanks so much for your help in finding our ties to John Hansen Sørbrøden! My sisters and I had a wonderful trip to Norway. We joined Michael (Bovre's) tour group for two Eidsvoll days and rented a car to visit Berg church and the farm named Sørbrøden.  Of course I have more puzzles that could be researched....sometime I will need to get myself organized and send them to you!”
