Membership Questionnaire

The Valdres Samband constitution prescribes that the organization collect, preserve and publish genealogical information for the benefit of future generations. n the 1970s and 1980s members filed out the "Valdres Samband Questionnaire" but in recent years that valuable collection effort fell by the wayside.  We are attempting to re-institute that practice so that we can develop a database of genealogical information.  Once in place, this database should help current and future members find distant cousins within the organization or additional information about more immediate family.  All of the handwritten or printed family books that the Samband has collected are available in our staffed genealogy room at the stevne. As Carl Narvestad wrote “The Valdres Samband welcomes such additions to its archives hoping to build the biggest collection of Valdres genealogies in America.”

We would encourage both new and current members to assist us in building a database of genealogical information.  If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact our genealogist at genealogist@valdressamband.org.

 There are two ways you can assist us:
