SOLØR LAG of AMERICA

Founded Sept. 7, 1910 in Minneapolis, MN.

Solørlag of America is a community of people searching out their family history in Hedmark Fylke in Norway. In its 35th year since reactivation in 1983, the lag's membership includes people with roots not only in the old Solør parishes of Brandval, Grue, Hof, Åsnes and Våler, but also Odal and Kongsvinger-Eidskog, plus Hedmark's northern area of Østerdal and Hedemarken near Lake Mjøsa. Large numbers of Finnish people settled in the forests of Hedmark along the Swedish border in the 1700's and 1800's. Many lag members have roots that go back to these Finnish immigrants to Norway.
