Publication Order Form
My name is Hans Olav
Lokken, from Stjørdal in Trøndelag in Norway. I write history linked
to my area here in Norway and also stories from America concerning
people who emigrated from my district. Two of the stories I will
be looking into are:
1. The fire of Moose Lake,
Kettle River - Minnesota in 1918.
2. The children's blizzard
in January 1888.
I am looking for "Norwegian"
families who lost someone in one of these two tragedies, became a
victim. The family must have their ancestors/family from my area here in
Norway: Stjordal, Hegra, Meraaker, Selbu, Tydal, Hommelvik, Malvik,
Asen or Frosta. If you are in family or know such a family, please
contact me by email:
firstname.lastname@example.org - I will then contact the family in
question, visit them in the future - do the interview, take
pictures and put the family and/or you into a chapter in my next book
possibly coming in November 2013. If you have other stories, I would appreciate
those too, but they must have a link to my catchment area. Thank you.

It is vital in
all cultural life to maintain a link between the present and the
past. If there is anything that history makes clear it is this, that
when a people becomes interested in its past life, seeks to acquire
knowledge in order to better understand itself, it always
experiences an awakening in life.
