“Chris, you have done a great job reading those old script pages and having the tenacity to keep on moving in a positive direction to go back further and further into the past. I remember spending time in the archives in Oslo and the research center in Salt Lake looking at all those faint pages trying to figure what either the word meant or was it misspelled. Thank you again for the good work.” (Gary/Washington)

“I really appreciate all of Arthur’s hard work with these letters!  I can only imagine how tough it must be to try to decipher this handwriting that is such a challenge to read, and then to do the actual translation as well.  It is so nice to have these letters.” (Beverly/Massachusetts)

      NAGC carries the Norge-Serien map series. These modern maps are extremely detailed and indicate the locations of the farms that are still in existence in Norway. To obtain a map of the farms related to your family history, complete the request and a researcher will determine which map or maps will show the locations of the farms on which your ancestors lived.

      The Norwegian topographic maps are the most detailed map series for Norway.  A total of 727 maps covering all of Norway show the location of individual farms and churches and each quadrangle is on the scale of 1:50,000.

      Please remember that it may take more than one map to complete your request if you have multiple farms in the same area.  A researcher will contact you to let you know exactly how many maps it will take to fill your order.

      Map costs are $32.00 for members of NAGCNL and $36.00 for non-members, plus shipping. The farm location will be marked, so that you can locate it.
