Welcome to SIGDALSLAG.ORG, the web site for people with “roots” in Sigdal, Eggedal and Krødsherad, Norway (Norge)!
Sigdalslag is an organization dedicated to preserving the Norwegian-American heritage for people whose ancestors emigrated from Sigdal, Eggedal or Krødsherad, Norway (Norge). We maintain a substantial genealogical library and maintain connections to people in our ancestral home areas in Norway.
