“Dear Solveig, Thank you so much for the translation work you did for us on the Hermansen documents. Together, these translations shed new light on the departure of my great grandmother's family from their native Norway. One can only imagine the true grit and fortitude it took to cross the mighty Atlantic to open a new chapter in their lives here in America. There immigrants were truly made of the "right stuff" and I am proud to carry on that family heritage today. Again, thank you for your work and we look forward to visiting the Center in the near future.”
