“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)

“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.”
- Link (Illinois)
“Dear Carol, I am very pleased with the info that you sent me on my Great Grandfather Ole Olsen Klevmoen. I apologize for not getting in touch with you before now, but I am trying to absorb all this info and get it in the right place. Again, thanks ever so much for all the info you found for me. I am very pleased with it and thank you ever so much.”
- Linda (Tennessee)
“Dear Solveig, Thank you very much for the recent translation from my Norwegian family Bible. I was grateful to learn that Niels Andreas Anstensen had indeed died as an infant within a year of his birth and for finding two more baptismal dates that were not available from The Scandinavian Lutheran Church on Ancestry.com You and the other staff are providing a much needed service when it comes to Norwegian genealogy. Much appreciated,”
- David (Washington)
“Dear Jerry, We had a most wonderful trip to Norway. In Rosendal, we talked with a woman named Linda at the Municipal Building who had received my letter. She used the bygdebok to advise us and also gave us the name & address of a man located on the other side of the fjord-in the area our family is from. We were fortunate that he was home and his sister/cousin (can't remember) was visiting & she spoke English. He and his late wife had preserved a number of buildings from the old days that were filled with artifacts and he was happy to show us around. Thank you so much for your help. You opened our eyes to much information, and to how to use the bygdebok to learn more.”
- Sue (Virginia)
“Dear Jerry, Thanks for a GREAT class in June!”
