2020 Research Guide for Norwegian Genealogy


The Research Guide for Norwegian Genealogy (7th Edition) provides the building blocks of knowledge and methods for Norwegian Americans who are trying to discover their Norwegian ancestors.

This guide will take you through the different types of records available in the US and Norway to help you locate the place (or places) in Norway your ancestors left behind and perhaps answer some of those questions about why they may have left and what their lives were like.
