¾ of my genes are rooted in Trøndelag, and mainly in Innherred. Three
of my grandparents have their roots around the Trondheimsfjord. My maternal
grandmothers ancestors lived in Oslo/Aker, and part of them – back in time –
down in Østfold.
I’m a member of Slekt og Data, Norways by far largest genealogical society, with more than 10.000 members. SoD Nord-Trøndelag
have local branches in Namsos, Steinkjer, Levanger and Stjørdal. To see
when we meet, you can take a look at the event calendar.
I use the program ”Family Tree Maker 2006 (norwegian version)”
to keep track of my ancestors. Ok program, easy to use and well
arranged. To see what's available of genealogical software, SoD has
made a list of much used programs.
