Testimonials

“Hello Solveig,Thank you for your help on my recent visit to the Naeseth Library. I was very impressed with the library and felt so welcomed & comfortable working there for the day. What a neat place it is, and you were so kind! The NAGC Research Guide and Norway map that I bought have been very helpful-I've used them alot, especially the Research Guide. It is really well written and has just the information all in one place that anyone needs to research their Norwegian ancestry. I now wish I lived in Madison (or at least not so far away, as I do)! Thank you again and hope to see you on some future trip to the Naeseth Library.”
