Norwegian Ancestry

Norwegian Ancestry is the working title of our project. Our goal is to write a how-to book in English about Norwegian genealogy research. We will use elements from two of my previous books, published in Norwegian – Slektsgransking. Steg for steg med praktiske eksempler (Genealogy. Step by step with practical examples, Aschehoug 2010) and Slektsgranskerens guide til utvandringen 1825-1930 (The Genealogist's Guide to Emigration 1825-1930, Vigmostad & Bjørke 2013).

Liv Marit Haakenstad received a grant from NFF to write the book. We are, however, still in need of funding for the translation from Norwegian to English, even though the book already has willing publishers in the United States.
