Norwegian-American Bygdelagenes Fellesraad
- Lag Information Sheet -


Founded Sept. 12, 1909 in Minneapolis, MN.

About Gudbrandsdalslaget:

Organized in 1909, our lag members are descendants, friends, and relatives of immigrants to America and Canada from the Gudbrandsdal area in Oppland, central Norway. The lag was formed for members to maintain their ties to the homeland: the culture, history, and customs, especially through our annual Stevne convention every August, held with two other lags. We meet in upper Midwest locations and feature seminars on a variety of relevant topics, excellent genealogy resources and assistance (see some of our resource links below), Norwegian foods and vendors, and a banquet. We enjoy meeting new friends, as well as seeing old friends and familiar faces every year. In recent years the lag has organized tours to Gudbrandsdalen and other parts of Norway to help participants experience their ancestral roots.

Visit our Gudbrandsdal website at http://www.gudbrandlag.org/. We also maintain a "Gudbrandsdalslaget" Group Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/gudbrandlag/ . Or contact any of the persons listed below for more information, including membership in our lag.
