We need your help. Join the many volunteers who are assisting with special genealogical projects and planning outreach events.


Volunteers are vital to our continued success. Many volunteers work from home using their own computers. For those in the Madison area, there are opportunities to work in all aspects of NAGC & NL operations.

We are happy to assist you in finding an area that complements your individual interests and talents. Without volunteers much of what we do would be impossible to achieve.

Consider joining us in this worthy effort…and have fun in the process!

Volunteers help organize special events that benefit the NAGC & NL’s mission and build its membership. Madison-area volunteers work together to produce an annual event that has achieved great success, the Madison Friends’ Dinner.

In coming years, NAGC & NL will be organizing, with volunteer help, similar events around the country.

Contact us to help plan an event in your area.

“I use this (Naeseth) Library for most of my Norwegian research.  I have found records from Norway and from some of the first Norwegian churches in Portage/Waupaca Counties that I could not find elsewhere.  Most of the materials are in Norwegian, which can cause some frustration if you do not have a basic knowledge of the language.  The staff is very knowledgeable and understands the difficulties of researching in a foreign language.  I have had many pleasant experiences working with the staff.I have been a member of this organization (NAGC & NL) for a number of years and have participated in the continuing educational opportunities offered.  The newsletter, received twice a year, reviews activities of the Center and announces new holdings and classes.If you are looking for Norwegian ancestors, this is an excellent research facility.”
