About Nord Hedmark og Hedemarken:
The Nord Hedmark og Hedemarken (NHOH) bygdelag is an
organization for friends and descendants of immigrants from
Hedmark, Norway who share an interest in genealogy, history and
culture of the region.
The lag is an expanded revival of the former
Østerdalslaget which was formed during their first stevne
at Fergus Falls, Minnesota on June 18, 1910 and dissolved in
1962. NHOH was formed in August 1995 in Madison Wisconsin.
Hedmark lies along the Swedish border in southeastern Norway
with the Glåma River running through its center in the østerdal,
or eastern valley. The lag covers the northern two thirds of
Hedmark fylke and encompasses the three districts of Nord
Østerdal, Sør Østerdal, and Hedemarken/Hamar. These three
districts currently include the following 16 kommuner: Alvdal,
Elverum, Engerdal, Folldal, Hamar, Løten, Os, Rendalen,
Ringsaker, Romedal, Stange, Stor-Elvdal, Tolga, Trysil, Tynset,
The bottom third of Hedmark is represented in Solør Lag.
