Norwegian Lag Week is a time when persons interested in Norwegian genealogy meet together in Salt Lake City at the Family History Library to research and learn together. We work diligently to plan some special classes about Norwegian research and new developments to help with our research. There is time available for research and also time to learn together. Sunday evening our group gathers at the hotel to get acquainted so we can help each other at the library to make the experience more meaningful.
This will be our 12th annual Norwegian Lag Week. There were two lag weeks prior to this that were both exploratory and a pilot for this annual event. We have been fortunate to work with two organizations in planning our week. One is the Bygdelagenes Fellesraad (umbrella organization for the bygdelag) and Family Search (related to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City). Our event could not be planned without them. Information about our event is posted on the Fellesraad website www.fellesraad.org. Various bygdelag publish information in their newsletters. Family Search is our key help for organizing the activities in Salt Lake City.
