Englewood Genealogical Society FL - the boss is in Norway!

Sue is in Norway - driving around in a small black Honda Jazz with her dear Hubby!

I am not going to tell you anything, because I know she would love to tell you the stories herself!

First we took them on the tram and then the bus and then the pub and...

to our best restaurant - Smia Galleri where we had monkfish for dinner. jummi!
The next day - we had sort of a drama - and had to call this guy...
I did not take a picture - but his partner was actually a small dog -really cute!  The story is for Sue to tell...
The main goal for the day was Vestre Gravlund - to find Sue's relatives' grave, and we found it.  I took a lot of pictures, but also that story is for Sue to tell. Another grave we found in the next field was for Einar and Werna Gerhardsen


On Sunday we took the bus downtown to meet Sue and John, and we first did the Norsk Folk Museum where we walked around, looked at all the old buildings. The main goal was the Stavechurch - Gol Stavechurch. We saw a lot of beautiful girls walking around in their bunads...

The swedish Setesdals-girl...

Telemark - Sue and Gol...

After a short stop at the gift shop Sue took us safely in the Jazzocar to the Vikinghips Museum. Not to busy - so I got to take some nice pics with my HTC Incredible...





I wish you a great stay in Norway Sue and John, you are incredible! I am so glad I found you guys in Englewood a couple of years ago. Here you can read the blogposts I tagged with "Englewood" - some in Norwegian, some in swingLish...

1910-tellingen i pdf/papirutgave!

Eksempel på en tellingside i pdf-fila
(og trykket utgave) - bilde fra Arkivverkets nettside.
Det er ikke alltid jeg har nettilgang, for eksempel på våre cruise fra Europa til USA og tilbake. Da er det mange dager "på sjøen" i strekk, og det er fint å ha noe å gjøre utenom å baske i solen. Jeg forbereder disse dagene før vi drar, ved å laste ned/skanne ting å lese, både tidsskrifter og kirkebøker.

Forberedelser til høstens reise (Barcelona til Miami med Liberty of the Seas) vil også inneholde en bestilling, nemlig pdf-utgave av 1910-tellingen for Oslo. Resten av landet er også tilgjengelig, men de store byene blir så tunge at de må bestilles. Så jeg skal altså få bestilt Oslo, og så laster jeg ned de andre kommunene jeg kommer til å trenge på veien.

Dette er et nytt tilbud fra vårt fantastiske arkivver, og du kan lese mer om det her.
