Norwegian Lag Week
Norwegian Genealogy Lag Research Trip to the Salt Lake City, Utah
Family History Library Combined with Roots Tech
Roots Tech is February 28 to March 3, 2018
Registration begins on September 20, 2017.
RootsTech is a global family history event where people of
all ages learn to discover and share their family stories
and connections through technology. At RootsTech, there is
something for you, regardless of your experience in family
history or your skill in technology.
For further information about Roots Tech go to their web
page. You will find information about previous presentations
as some of their lectures are on line. In fact many family
history centers have been using the lectures for their
genealogy training sessions throughout the country.
Attendees in our Norwegian Lag Group that have attended
Rootstech say it is an excellent opportunity to learn more
about genealogy research and all the technology that is
available to them.
Norwegian Lag Week is March 4 to March 10, 2018

Our annual trip to the Family History Library is scheduled the
week after Roots Tech from March 4 to 10, 2018. The two
events are intentially scheduled together as it is a great
opportunity to participate in the state of the art for both
technology and genealogy as well as special research time at
the Family History Center. However, you may choose to attend
the Lag week only or Roots Tech Only.
Norwegian Lag week provides an opportunity to meet with other
persons researching their Norwegian ancestry to improve your
knowledge and skills in working with a wide variety of
materials and research tools emphasizing Norwegian records.
This event is a cooperative effort between Family Search and
the Bygdelagenes Fellesraad. Elaine Hasleton from the Family
Search Department at Salt Lake City and current Bygdelagenes
Fellesraad President and Marilyn Sorensen, current Fellesraad
Vice President and a long time specialist with Norwegian
genealogy, are coordinators of this event. There will be
special classes relating to Norwegian genealogy. It may
provide insights about activities at the Family History
Library that will improve use and access to their reference
material. Also the FHL offers a regular schedule of classes
relating to genealogy. Another bonus is their state of the art
technology to work with as well as excellent help to
accomplish many genealogical tasks.
