Testimonials

“Dear Jerry, We had a most wonderful trip to Norway. In Rosendal, we talked with a woman named Linda at the Municipal Building who had received my letter. She used the bygdebok to advise us and also gave us the name & address of a man located on the other side of the fjord-in the area our family is from. We were fortunate that he was home and his sister/cousin (can't remember) was visiting & she spoke English. He and his late wife had preserved a number of buildings from the old days that were filled with artifacts and he was happy to show us around. Thank you so much for your help. You opened our eyes to much information, and to how to use the bygdebok to learn more.”

- Sue (Virginia)
