Sognalag is one of 8 lags under the umbrella organization of “Vestlandslaget.” The 8 lags are Sogn, Hardanger, Nordfordland, Sunnfjord, Rogaland, Sunnhordland, Voss, and Møre og Romsdal.
In joining Vestlandslag, you may belong to any or all!
With your membership, you will receive 4 issues of theVestlandet newsletter per year. We also encourage members to contribute articles to the newsletter. In addition, if you are interested in genealogy or ancestral farms in Norway, the lag will help you search for information, or if you have the genealogy “bug” yourself, you may use the resources we own (see Genealogy page.) You are also welcome to join us for our annual meeting or “stevne” every summer. There you will meet other Sognings, attend programs, research genealogy, and shop at the vendor booths specializing in Norwegian products and gifts.
If you have ancestry from the Hardanger area, you may wish to sign up an additional newsletter, Hardanger Hilsen, for $8. Hardangerlag genealogist, Laurel Dikken, who authors this publication.
