“Dear Carol & Solveig, Thanks for all your help when I came to the Center: Solveig, for translating and the things we discussed; Carol, for helping me learn how to figure out the bygdeboker. This has been such an exciting endeavor for me, as I move from knowing only my great-grandmother's last name (and the wrong county in Norway) in 2014-to now having my family (and both sides of her family) all the way back to the 1600's & where they lived. So much fun. I will be back to work further, so I thank you again.”

- Karol (Illinois)
