Testimonials

“Dear Solveig, My sister Lori and I thank you on behalf of the Twedt and Olson families for your successful efforts in finding our Norwegian family records for Gunder Louven and his (2) wives.  These records, that we were not able to locate through our own six-month research, now provide us with the real names of our third-great grandmother and the history. The records you found also gave us the names of our fourth-great grandfather and grandmother (Gunder Louven's parents).Words cannot express the pure joy that we felt when you told us the news. We will forever be thankful for your tireless efforts, which now give us the opportunity to go further back in our research on our mother's side of the family.I have enclosed a donation check to NAGC & NL. We look forward to receiving the documents of evidence that you discovered. God Bless You.”

- Joanne (Florida)
