This time the experienced genealogist Bård Erling Ofstad hold lecture: "One generation Fyhn"

A number of families of immigrants over the centuries to Norway to seek his fortune. Many came from Denmark, which was natural since we were part of the Danish-Norwegian kingdom.

To follow a particular family's origins and development will be a very interesting example of innvandrete generations to Norway.

NSF come in the future to concentrate on publishing sources that are not so easily accessible. One of the sources is capture protocols as it gets published several of the spring.
NSF also hope that this material is so well received that more people will choose to join the union so that NSF gets the finances to continue scanning and photography, as this is both time consuming and costly.

The new website (an entirely different platform) begins to take shape, and we are currently working to find out what the new should contain, while finding new sources we believe are useful in genealogy. Lars Ove Wangensteen found that capture protocols can provide many useful information, and he has probably taken over 1000 pictures already, both of Discipline house / Female Prison in Oslo and other prisons.
