Norwegian Lag Week in Salt Lake City, Utah

February 12, 2017 - February 18, 2017

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.

“Dear Solveig, Thank you so much for the translation work you did for us on the Hermansen documents. Together, these translations shed new light on the departure of my great grandmother's family from their native Norway. One can only imagine the true grit and fortitude it took to cross the mighty Atlantic to open a new chapter in their lives here in America. There immigrants were truly made of the "right stuff" and I am proud to carry on that family heritage today. Again, thank you for your work and we look forward to visiting the Center in the near future.”
