About Hallinglag:

The Hallinglag is an organization of emigrant descendants from the Halling Valley in Norway and those interested in its history and culture. The Hallinglag was formed in 1907 to maintain their ties to the homeland and provide a place for those emigrants to assemble.

Each August the Hallinglag holds its annual all family reunion known as the "stevne". The stevne includes: Interesting speakers, Genealogy assistance including an extensive library, Norwegian foods and vendors, and a banquet, singing and dancing.

The Hallinglag is a member of the Norwegian-American Bygdelagenes Fellesraad.

The Hallinglag website is www.fellesraad.com/hallinglag/ They maintain a Group Facebook Page called: Hallinglag of America.
