Testimonials

“After receiving the information from your organization about finding my husband's family farm on Sjernaroy, we rerouted our whole trip to go there. The map from Solveig was crucial. We ran into a tour at the church where records showed John's grandfather was baptised- those records were from your genealogists. The tour guide told us his wife was related to the Norheims and pointed out the direction of the farms. We followed a sign that said NORHEIM -> and it led us to the cluster of farms owned by Norheims. At the first farm, the wife told us they weren't related and sent us on to the next farm.  At the next farm, the farmer and his son went into get the grandfather, who came out with the Sjernaroy family history book. He said he wasn't related but showed us the page his family was on and told us to go to the next farm. Our wonderful driver was fearless about talking to anyone- good thing too because many of the people didn't speak English. At the third farm was an 80 something year old man sitting on his porch listening to the radio in his slippers. Our driver showed him the baptismal record and he said, "that is my uncle." He told us about his father and he took us inside to show us photos. He also pointed out the house where John's grandfather was born. This was all because of your hard work. Both John and I want to thank you for giving us this gift.”
