The Valdres Samband was organized in 1899. The Samband sponsors a “stevne” or yearly gathering in June of each year. It allows members to come together to use the extensive collection of genealogical resources maintained by the Samband, attend classes and learn more about the Valdres Valley’s history, culture, and the lives of the immigrants in America, and enjoy the camaraderie of new friends – and newly discovered cousins.
In 2015, Valdres will be joined by the Vestland and Hallingdal lags. The multi-lag stevne will be held at the Best Western Kelly Inn in St. Cloud, Minnesota from June 18-20, 2015.
