The live broadcast starts at Noon Eastern US (New York), 11am Central US (Chicago), 10am Mountain US (Denver, Salt Lake City), 9am Pacific US (Los Angeles).

Having a starting point in the USA with a few facts about the Norwegian ancestor(s) makes it possible to find them in Norway by using FamilySearch, the Digital Archives and the Norwegian Historical Data Centre (censuses) separately and in combination. The Church books at the Digital Archives are the main sources of information about Norwegians and can be read both transcribed and in scanned versions. Many more sources can be found there, than the usual vital records, vaccination to mention one. These sources are all accessible for free. We will show you how to use technology in translating different kinds of text and how to write all the letters in the Norwegian alphabet, which has 29 letters. We will talk about Norwegian naming patterns and we will show how to optimize searching to find what you need more easily.

Liv is a lecturer in both her home country of Norway and the U.S. and a member of APG, she is a popular webinar speaker for international audiences. Liv specializes in her grandparents’ home counties, establishing provenance of family heirlooms, identifying persons and places in photographs, and discovering DNA proof of lineage.
