“Dear Carol, Wow-what a find....... This was both a blind-sided joy that you completed the circle of information that I had sought for more than 30 years and the information that must have been a very difficult secret to keep for my great grandmother's entire life. Congratulations for your effort and ingenuity in solving this puzzle for me. Enclosed is a check to cover the cost of your research. Thank you a thousand times for your find. I am at ease now to know this link to my past.”

“I so appreciate all the effort of both you and Jerry 'borrowing' ÆTTARBOK for KVAM II ØYSTESE SOKN and then copying my family pages. It is so good seeing the originals and finding the portions of information that I'd only heard about. Brings all these people to life for me. And it is fascinating to learn more about them. Tusen ganger tusen takk for finding my ancestors for me.”
- Adele (Canada)
“Dear Jerry, Thank you so much for doing all this research on my behalf. The information you uncovered filled a big hole in my family's history. What a surprise it was to find your letter in the mailbox, when I thought we'd hit a dead end. If you don't mind, I have a few more questions.....”
- Bo-Violet (California)
“Very nice work, Solveig! Much appreciated.”
- David (Minnesota)
“I was floating on a cloud after the class. The excellence of Jerry's instruction and all of the wonderful participants made the class very special. I love writing, but I rarely have the time to sit down to write. It was wonderful to take a pause in life to start getting some of these stories on paper.”

“I have been having a great time in the databases on your website, especially in the Cemeteries. [Only a genealogist would say that.] Found a number of my people who I knew had died in USA but I hadn't known where. The "Search" is very efficient and used friendly.”
- Adele (Canada)
“Thanks so much to Jerry for the PROMPT service! So very helpful!”
- Michael (Iowa)

- Karl (Wisconsin)
“I am a norwegian, always living in Norway. Very interesting to see your videos and that you are interested in Norway and where you come from. It seems to me that your center is doing a great job to help people to find out where they come from.”
- Tor (Norway)
“Carol, Thank you again for the great research you did on my norwegian ancestors.”
