Testimonials

“Just a quick thank you to Carol Culbertson for the research she did. It was very helpful in understanding how my ancestors came to be on the Vangen farm; and Solveig's translation was a tremendous help, as it brought everything in perspective--trying to translate a word here & there just doesn't give you the full picture. All of you do such a service to all of us looking for our Norwegian ancestors and having the translations is icing on the cake :)”
