If you are researching your Norwegian roots, and you are interested in

What is the NORWAY-List?
The list is owned and administrated by
Karla Halsan Mattila.
Karla administrates the list with the care and love of a mother. The
list is a part of Rootsweb. It is a list of over 600 of the friendliest and most patient and
helpful people on the Internet, at least dealing with things Norwegian. The experience level in
Norwegian genealogy and various aspects of computing on the List ranges from absolute beginner
to professionals. Most people are looking for ancestors and want to help others. Some are there
only because they enjoy helping others, especially the wonderful members who live in Norway. The
purpose of the list is for people to meet on the web, to
enjoy the hobby of genealogy research, and to share a common interest with others on the list.
The members on the list will not do your family research for you, but in many cases they will do
lookups, and give advice. Experienced list members will offer ways they have found, that may help
you find answers for yourself.
The subjects discussed on the list ranges a wide specter of Norwegian related stuff, from
Norwegian genealogy and research, to recipes, folklore, traveling in Norway, and much more.
There is even a daily Norwegian joke posted to the list.
