Bygdeboker by InterLibrary Loan Once you find a book you are interested in, there are a few libraries in the US with good collections. You can also join Vesterheim Genealogical Center - they are a great source for researching your Norwegian heritage. They have bygdeboker available for loan at a modest fee. St. Olaf College has the most extensive lending library for Bygdebøker in the US. You can also borrow books from University of Minnesota and University of Wisconsin-Madison through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). University of North Dakota does NOT offer their books through Interlibrary Loan. ------------------------------------------------------------- According to a message from Frank Higgins (E-mail: Purchase from Norway runs about $100 per book incl. shipping. Several places in the USA have collections: Heritage Museum in Seattle Family History Library in Salt Lake Univ. of North Dakota. There are others. - Sometimes one of them will send a copy of a few pages (underline 'few') for a fee. Personal experience has been that you have to order each book from the Kommune that prepared it. Be sure in corresponding with the Norwegian source that they understand that you want a book that gives names. ------------------------------------------------------------- Carol (e-mail: notes: The LDS has some bygdeboks on microfiche. They may be ordered for 15 cents per fiche -------------------------------------------------------------
