  • The Folks from Stokkset and Faraasen in Ringsaker. A Patchwork Chronicle
    by Nancy L. Coleman, 2020.

The author, Nancy Coleman writes: "I have recently written and published a book about immigrants to the US from Ringsaker in Hedmark, Norway. A significant part of it deals with members of the Norwegian extended family that settled in Allamakee county, Iowa. There is a good bit of information about the various family lines in the book, but it is not primarily a genealogy book, since I have only included 2-3 generations in each line, the immigrants and their children and grandchildren. But I have traced the family roots in Norway and tried to sketch in a picture of how their lives were and what they were looking for when they emigrated, i.e. to provide context. If people know who their grandparents are, then they can continue their own family story. I have been very meticulous when using sources to get reliable infomation."

This book is available on Amazon.com where you can read about the author & for a longer description of the book. If you don't use Amazon, e-mail Nancy (tootch@gmail.com) for assistance in purchasing her book.
