Willing to volunteer some time and talent at the Stevne?
We can use some help with a variety of tasks at the Stevne: spend an hour or two assisting in the Hospitality Room, take photos of Stevne activities, work at the Trønderlag membership table and perhaps things we haven't thought of yet. Please contact lag president, Linda Schwartz, or vice president, Trudy DeKeuster, for more information about our needs.


Check out our most recent membership photo, taken at the Tre Lag Stevne in August.

Contribution of articles of interest to our members is always greatly appreciated! If you would like to receive a sample copy of the newsletter, please contact the newsletter editor.

Trøndelag web sites - Have you created a web site for your Trøndelag ancestors? Send the URL to Webmaster and we'll post it with others on our genealogy resources page.

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.
