“I so appreciate all the effort of both you and Jerry 'borrowing' ÆTTARBOK for KVAM II ØYSTESE SOKN and then copying my family pages.  It is so good seeing the originals and finding the portions of information that I'd only heard about. Brings all these people to life for me. And it is fascinating to learn more about them. Tusen ganger tusen takk for finding my ancestors for me.”

- Adele (Canada)

“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.”

“Dear Solveig, Thank you so much for all the translations you did for me -- and the Lee family! ....All the translated letters are now incorporated in the book I'm writing about my grandfather, his ancestors and descendants.  It has been such an enjoyable experience reading the translations and learning of the experiences, thoughts, feelings, challenges, etc. of the Lee immigrants in the later 1800's and early 1900's. ”

“Dear Carol, I am very pleased with the info that you sent me on my Great Grandfather Ole Olsen Klevmoen.  I apologize for not getting in touch with you before now, but I am trying to absorb all this info and get it in the right place.   Again, thanks ever so much for all the info you found for me.  I am very pleased with it and thank you ever so much.”

- Linda (Tennessee)

“Greetings to all of you at NAGC & NL.  Thank you for all of the help each of you have given me each time I have come to the library to work on my family history.  I have learned so much and enjoyed the visits and the chats about Norwegian history.  I will be back in 2017 to learn more but for now, this is just a note to tell you how much I appreciate working with you all.”

- Karoline (Illinois)
