“Carolyn, I want to thank you, so much, for the genealogy research you did on my Grandmother’s ancestry. It was more than I ever expected. All of the information will enable me to have a wonderful trip to Norway in 2022. I have already made several genealogical contacts in Hedmark Fylke from which one part of my ancestors lived. To be able to trace my ancestors back to the 1700’s means a great deal to me and my family. Your extensive research was outstanding. I especially enjoy the ancestor charts, family group sheets, the excerpts from the Sor-Ordal Bygdeboks, the Grueboka book and the documentation. I appreciate the way you referenced all of the family members and referenced them to the ancestor charts and the group sheets. It was a very clear road map to my past. I will probably contact you later for another search on the other side of my ancestors. Thank you, again!”
