Fra Formannen (From the President)

 

We have only 4 months until the 2017 Stevne in Shoreview, Minnesota on June 15-17, 2017.  Detailed information will appear this website and in the May 2017 Budstikken.  Please plan on attending!

So much has happened since the board meeting in September 2016.  We have started the digitization of the Valdres Samband Materials which is being funded by our membership and donations to the geneaology and preservation.  

 

Membership is taking a new avenue due to modifications by new Membership Director – Avis Rosenlund.  We are gaining new members, but also thru normal attrition we are losing members due to age.  For some of us we are the first generation involved in the Valdres Samband and for others we are just the latest generation of Valdres Samband members.  We are always looking for new members, renewing old members and remembering the first members who started and kept this organization running.  We encourage renewing your membership in a timely manner and consider giving gift memberships to family members or friends who might be interest in Valdres.

 

The new genealogist, Tom Standal is working on the members family histories that hopefully will be more user friendly and updated as time goes on for everyone!

 

We are actively seeking board directors, recording secretary, treasurer before our June Stevne so if you are interested for complete information.

 

Your interest and membership in the Valdres Samband is the most important part of this organization.  If we did not have you, this group would not continue on as it has since 1899!  Please share stories, pictures, or memories of your Valdres relatives and who knows…..we might all be related!
