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.

NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT
It was so nice meeting new people and renewing acquaintances at the stevne. I thought that it was a very good stevne with some new program ideas.
Next year’s stevne will be in Austin the second weekend of July 2016. My chance to see the new spam museum.
Our Fellesraad Centennial is May 5 – 8, 2016 at the Doubletree by Hilton and the Earle Brown Center in Brooklyn Center, MN. Remember that there is a price reduction for lag members who register by January 15, 2016. The Doubletree has great rates and an included buffet breakfast, so make your reservations early because we expect to use up our block.
Please see this paper for activities for the youth on May 7th during the Centennial celebration. Childrens program at the Centennial celebration

We are planning a Norway trip in the second half of June 2017. We will spend a number of days in Sigdal under the direction of Sigrid Kvisle and we are hopeful that we will have arrangements for her to meet us as she did in 2012. We expect to stay at the folk museum unless people have other choices. The Sigdal trip as arranged locally was cost effective in 2012. The trip will have some flexibility for people to make sojourns to other relatives in other areas before or after. More information will be forthcoming. We will develop a special Facebook group for posting information. Hilsen,
