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.

Good news!  After a year of pandemic isolation, we are a definite GO for a real live Stevne in 2021.

We know you’ll be able to relate to our conference theme:  Plague, Privation, and Turmoil: Past Meets Present

Tre Lag 2021 will be held in the Maidison Wisconsin area, a veritable hub of Norwegian history and culture.  Our headquarters will be at the Mariott West in Middleton.  There is much to see and do in the area, so book your hotel room and start making plans now.  (see visitmiddleton.com for local info and amenities)

The meeting will be held from  August 11-14, 2021… which is a week later our usual August slot.  As details become available, they will be posted in the Stevne section of this website.  We hope to see you there!!
