Hej all,

When I bought my home, there was a large number of photographs and letters dating from 150 years ago or so that were part of the purchase price of my home.

I've got the information on the names etc.

The family was from Norway (unfortunately the last name is Olson), but I have first names to go on as well.

I'm looking for a web site that might be similar to this one, or even any web site that specifically targets Norwegian ancestors.

Any suggestions?

I'd love to get these fantastic photos back to someone. The family here is mostly gone, and those that exist have no interest in their background and have no idea about where they come from.

As an amateur genealogist, I will keep them safe until I find someone that is interested. I know there must be someone... even if it is the commune from where they came, such as a museum or something. If it weren't for me, the heirs were throwing all of the household belongings into the trash! I said, NO, I'll take them, and they said, fine.

Any Norge ancestry pages you send me to will be appreciated.

Tack - Ilmari:)
