“You and your colleagues gave us breakthrough results in our search for Johanna’s parents and grandparents. You also helped build our understanding in a number of areas (Norwegian naming customs, language & history-as well as resources such as the Norwegian Digital Archives). All of this, thanks to you, has greatly increased our ability to work independently in further research on Billie’s Norwegian family tree.”
