Although NAGC & NL was founded by Professor Gerhard B. Naeseth in 1974, the NAGC & NL first began operating as an independent entity in January, 2007. Chartered as a not-for-profit corporation in the State of Wisconsin, the NAGC & NL has enjoyed great support from across the country during its transition to complete operational independence. To recognize this impressive outpouring of support, and to report to its wide membership, annual reports are issued each year. The Annual Report includes the names of the many donors of time, talent, and treasure who give so much during each calendar year. These Reports are one small way to thank these donors and to acknowledge the growing NAGC & NL community. Printed copies of Annual Reports are distributed to all members and friends and are available upon request.
By becoming a member, you not only gain benefits for your family history research, you also support a worthy cause.
Your annual membership helps you, your family, and a wide community discover their roots and preserve a treasured heritage.
NAGC & NL relies upon donations of all types from its members and friends throughout the world.
All gifts, whether large or small, are essential to the work of the Center, an important non-profit organization of international scope that is dedicated to preserving Norwegian-American history and heritage.
“Dear Jerry and Solveig, I can’t thank you both enough for the research, the map and the advice. As a result of your hard work, I have changed our itinerary to visit the island of Sjemaroy for the day. This involved herculean efforts on the part of our patient travel agent. Her new name is Bless-her-heart. I will let you know what we find when we get there and will take some photos! I think my husband will be overwhelmed being in a place where his name is so common. Thank you for giving history and depth to people’s lives.”
