The most useful and interesting source of Norwegian genealogy comes from using Ancestry.Com's message boards for Norway
. A message board allows a person who is hunting an ancestor to email who they are searching for to the place where the ancestor was born, lived, or died and then hopefully receive some type of reply. For example, all my Norwegian ancestors lived and worked on farms. I asked on the forums if anyone had pictures of these farms. In most cases I have been able to receive the pictures of the farms from people (mostly Norwegian) who has access to sources such as Bygdeboks. The picture is of one these farms. The name of the farm is Jegliem and it is where my gg-grandmother, Guri Lien, was born. It is located in the Hallingdal region in the county of Buskerud.
