Nord Hedmark og Hedemarken Lag
Welcome to an organization of descendants from the North Hedmark and Hedemarken area of Norway
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.
