“I use this (Naeseth) Library for most of my Norwegian research. I have found records from Norway and from some of the first Norwegian churches in Portage/Waupaca Counties that I could not find elsewhere. Most of the materials are in Norwegian, which can cause some frustration if you do not have a basic knowledge of the language. The staff is very knowledgeable and understands the difficulties of researching in a foreign language. I have had many pleasant experiences working with the staff.I have been a member of this organization (NAGC & NL) for a number of years and have participated in the continuing educational opportunities offered. The newsletter, received twice a year, reviews activities of the Center and announces new holdings and classes.If you are looking for Norwegian ancestors, this is an excellent research facility.”
