“To Solveig, Diane and the entire NAGC staff-Thank you for the work that you do! Solveig, I especially appreciate all your help on the day that I spent with you in the library this October. Thank You! And the renovations are fabulous, congratulations!”

- Pamela (Florida)

“I just received the map Carol sent me showing where my Great-Great-Grandmother's family farm is (was). The map also shows where the "Rogstad" farm is, and which "Vang" church my Great Grandfather was born in. I can't tell you how this answers soooo many questions I've had about my Norwegian Ancestry. It was like the small drop of glue that holds everything together!”

- Mark (Washington)

“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!”

- Susan (New Mexico)

“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.”
