TRØNDERLAG PUBLICATIONS

TRØNDERLAG OF AMERICA HAS TWO TYPES OF PUBLICATIONS:

Our newsletter, "Trønderlag Nyheter Brev", published three times each year, usually in March, June, and November. Along with our website, and Facebook page, the newsletter is our main means of communciating with our members.

Årbøker ("year books") whose goal is to help us maintain a history of Trønderlag and share that history with lag members and others. They often include immigrant letters and biographies with some including of families.

     

ÅRBØKER:

In 2005 Trønderlag of America re-established the tradition of publishing a Trønderlag Aarbok (a yearbook).

This 2005 Aarbok was the first the lag had published in more than 20 years. The purpose of the yearbook is to help us maintain a history of Trønderlag and share that history with lag members and others. Our special focus was immigrant biographies and we were highly successful in having a large number submitted for the book. Some biographies included several generations of families. Many included photos. Each årbøk is described below.

TRØNDERLAG NYHETER BREV:

A 12-16 page newsletter, "Trønderlag Nyheter Brev", is published three times a year. Members receive the newsletter as part of their membership dues. It contains information about the activities of the Trønderlag and its stevnes as well as genealogical and cultural articles.  There are interesting articles about its members in America and Norway and countless other topics relating to Trøndelag heritage.

Article contributions related to Trøndelag, your immigrant families, or other Trøndelag or Norway related topics are always welcome. Send them to the newsletter editor.  WE NEED A SAMPLE WITH PERHAPS THE FIRST 1-3 PAGES IN PDF FORMAT SO THEY CAN SEE ONE.
