“I just paid the invoice for Chris' research.  I am honestly blown away by the amount of information she was able to assemble in so short a time and the completeness of her documentation.  I definitely know more about my roots than I did before getting her help. Thanks to everyone at NAGC & NL for the valuable services you provide. Please refer to the testimonial below.   For years we have known that my grandfather took the name of the family which fostered him from ages 5-21.  We had no idea what our actual last name was.  Flash forward to Chris Klauer.  In 4 hours she had determined  the name of my grandfather's biological father, traced his mother back to Norway, and determined her emigration date. Given such success in so limited a limited time, I asked her to do more research on both my grandfather's and grandmother's ancestors in Norway.  We can now trace by grandfather's ancestors back to the early 1600's and my grandmother's to the 1700's.  Fun fact, one of my grandmother's ancestors had almost folk hero status. Throughout the process Chris has been a pleasure to work and communicate with.  Her documentation is thorough and she does her best to put the information in the context of the times and locations.  More than just a line of ancestors, she has helped me build a picture and story regarding my family. I can't recommend the research services of the Norwegian American Genealogical Center strongly enough.  ”
