“Thanks for sending to me the records associated with the family search done by Carol Culbertson. I have been busy reading through all of it today-as well as following the links provided-  it's so exciting to discover more about ancestors!”

- Diane (Wisconsin)

“Carol and Diane,  HUGE thanks for your extra efforts to get this family information to me.  You are so very much appreciated!  Thank you for getting this information to me, so that I can share it with my sister.  ”

- Larry (Washington)

“Solveig, I appreciate the help in translating my family history. They (the letters) were informative and I can pass the info on to my family. Take care and be safe!”

- Roberta (Wisconsin)

“Thank you SO much, Dana, for your valuable assistance and kindness! I learned much, and was able to ‘gather my thoughts’ to begin to put my grandmother's story to paper. That was exactly what I was hoping to get out of the class.”

- Susan (Wisconsin)

“Dear Solveig, Tusen Takk for translating this long and difficult article for me.  I think it is rare to find "a story" such as this about ancestors, so it is very precious to me!  Again, many thanks!”

- Rita (Wisconsin)

“Dear Solveig, I am so glad to have this translated account of my grandmother's life. Thank you / Tusen Takk!”

- Norma (Minnesota)

“Solveig, the hard copy of your translation arrived yesterday-and I can't thank you enough for doing this for our family. It means so much to us. Our son Michael is keeping family history, as is our daughter keeping in touch with relatives still alive in Norway, and this adds important parts to our knowledge of who we are, who came before us. I have a photograph of Karen when she was white haired living in her cabin on the mountainside - sitting outdoors at her treadle sewing machine (determined a person as she was, I think she wasn't going to waste a sunny day by doing her sewing indoors!). Thank you profusely for your part in enriching our family story.”

- Norma (Minnesota)

“Dear Michael, Last night I thoroughly studied everything you sent - what a wealth of information- and realized this took way more than the two hours I paid for- just writing the report had to take a long time... Thus, I will be sending a check for more hours of work. I do understand how long it can take to find everything, even for someone like you who is such an expert researcher. That way it will cover at least some of the extra work you put into this, as well as, maybe add a little time to do more on my family. I also know you made the note about adding more about Thone's father. Let me know if I owe more. Thanks too for including all the links. That way I can find the documentation. And thank you too, for making this easy to follow. That, in itself, is quite a skill.”

- Diane (Wisconsin)

“Dear Jerry, How lucky I am to have found you! You have done such diligent research and I hope to share with my birth mom. My husband and I hope the corona virus won't alter our plans to go to Scandinavia in June.”

- Lucille (Colorado)

“Thanks for the wonderful translations, Solveig! I would indeed appreciate an email with the translations, so I can share them with relatives.”

- David (Illinois)
