  1. What a joy to stumble upon your website! I am, as well as my three sisters, 100%Norwegian. We are very proud of our heritage and know a lot about it, but always fun to share with people who know what lutefisk is, etc.

    We grew up going to school in Lake Mills, Iowa and living east and north of there just south of Albert Lea, MN on the Iowa side of the border. Our home was on the farm was called the “the church farm” for Silver Lake Lutheran Church. It was a great place to grow up — scandinavians everywhere!

    I’m in the process of documenting our genealogy as well as updating it for the new generations. What I need assistance with is the ships that came to the northern US or Canada. My great grandmother was Anna (Sanvik) Everson. She was about 12 when she came over on a boat. We do know she did not come through Ellis Island. If anyone is interested in sharing, I’m very much interested. I believe Stavangar area is where her family had lived in Norway. Some of our relatives also came from the Lillemark area.

    My three sisters have all visited Norway to visit the places of family homes. Very interesting!
