About Nord Hedmark og Hedemarken:

The Nord Hedmark og Hedemarken (NHOH) bygdelag is an organization for friends and descendants of immigrants from Hedmark, Norway who share an interest in genealogy, history and culture of the region.

The lag is an expanded revival of the former Østerdalslaget which was formed during their first stevne at Fergus Falls, Minnesota on June 18, 1910 and dissolved in 1962. NHOH was formed in August 1995 in Madison Wisconsin.

NHOH Map Hedmark lies along the Swedish border in southeastern Norway with the Glåma River running through its center in the østerdal, or eastern valley. The lag covers the northern two thirds of Hedmark fylke and encompasses the three districts of Nord Østerdal, Sør Østerdal, and Hedemarken/Hamar. These three districts currently include the following 16 kommuner: Alvdal, Elverum, Engerdal, Folldal, Hamar, Løten, Os, Rendalen, Ringsaker, Romedal, Stange, Stor-Elvdal, Tolga, Trysil, Tynset, Vang, Åmot.

The bottom third of Hedmark is represented in Solør Lag.
