Facebook and e-mail news are how we stay in touch between (Yearlly get togethers) Our Stevne


is an organization of the descendants of immigrants who came to North America from the northern counties of Norway, beginning around the middle of the 19th Century. The "Lag" formed as those immigrants developed a mutual support network for their kinfolk and for the Nordlendinger who would follow to the new world.

Today Nordlandslaget continues in that tradition -- networking to sustain the spirit, maintain ties to the homeland.

Genealogy is a major focus of many lags today. Perseving the culture of the regions thru annual get togethers (Stevnes) that bond the Lag members together now and into the future.

Purpose of Bygdelags: "To link the past with the present and future"
and to be "an educational / promotion site for Northern Norway"

The "Nord-lands-laget" Bygdelag is one of many Norwegian organizations (Lags) comprised of descendants of emigrants from Norway to North America.
