Since 1910, Landingslaget has brought together immigrants and their North American descendants from the kommuner of North and South Land in Oppland Fylke, Norway. Through our publications, annual stevner, and trips to Norway, we strive to provide opportunities for our membership to learn more about their ancestors and the area of Norway they left behind.
We invite you to spend some time on our website and learn more about our bygdelag and the culture and community of Land.
Bygdelagenes Fellesraad and Norway House are excited to be partnering in the upcoming expansion of the current Norway House campus. The expansion will include a research library, space, and classes needed to introduce genealogy to a new generation of researchers.
As part of a $500,000 gift, former president of Telelaget and current Norway House board member, Dr. John E. Haugo is matching all donations toward the library, up to $200,000, until May 5th, 2018! Fellesraad and Bygdelag members have already given over $107,000 toward this goal, leaving $93,000 left to match! So close!
You can donate online by clicking here . Be sure to scroll down to the "Capital Campaign" so funds will be directed to the matching fund library campaign - or send your check made out to Norway House with "Genealogy Library" on the memo line!

Call for Immigrant Letters!
Are you or any of your family members in possession of old letters received by your immigrant ancestors from their relatives in Land?
Lands Museum is hoping to find letters sent to immigrants from Land and is looking to Landingslag for help.
If your family has any such letters please send scanned copies to Sandra Hendrickson
These letters will be translated for you if desired.
