“Dear Jerry, My visit with you in June was a rewarding experience. Your instruction on how to use the online Digital Archives of Norway has been extremely useful in my family research. Upon my return home, I immediately went online and put to use the methods that you taught me at the Library-and I'm now managing to locate a great deal of information on the Digital Archives on my own. I have also found A Research Guide for Norwegian Genealogy to be a great resource.  Please also extend my thanks to Solveig, who was able to translate for me some family information that I brought along on my visit.  I hope to return to the Library again in the near future for additional assistance in tracking down family records. I will also be periodically checking the website events calendar, as I would like to attend your next Beginning Genealogy Class.”
