Our Purpose

Our Purpose

Nord-Hedmark og Hedemarken Lag is organized exclusively for educational purposes. To the extent consistent with this general purpose, the specific purposes of the Lag are to help people learn more about the history, culture, and customs of the Nord Hedmark and Hedemarken area of Norway and to aid in the preservation of that heritage, to teach and assist people in genealogy research, to gather immigration and settlement history and develop immigration data, to develop a library of resources, such as bygdebøker (farm histories) and Norwegian church, census, and probate records, and to encourage the research and writing of family, immigration, and settlement histories.

2021 Tre Lag Stevne

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Planning Committee for Tre Lag Stevne  determined that it was necessary to cancel our plans for Tre Lag 2020 in Madison

The good news is that the Madison Marriott is working with us to shift our contract from August 2020 to August 2021.  We haven’t got ink on a final agreement for 2021 yet, but that’s in the works.  The dates we’ve settled on are August 11-14, 2021… which is a week later our usual August slot.
