Valdres Samband Stevne

June 18, 2015 - June 20, 2015

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.

Testimonials

“I use this (Naeseth) Library for most of my Norwegian research.  I have found records from Norway and from some of the first Norwegian churches in Portage/Waupaca Counties that I could not find elsewhere.  Most of the materials are in Norwegian, which can cause some frustration if you do not have a basic knowledge of the language.  The staff is very knowledgeable and understands the difficulties of researching in a foreign language.  I have had many pleasant experiences working with the staff.I have been a member of this organization (NAGC & NL) for a number of years and have participated in the continuing educational opportunities offered.  The newsletter, received twice a year, reviews activities of the Center and announces new holdings and classes.If you are looking for Norwegian ancestors, this is an excellent research facility.”
