"Norwegians, Swedes and More" provides a synopsis of our ancestral family components; Norwegians and Swedes as well as those of the French, German, English and Canadian sescent by way of the St. Lawrence Seaway in Quebec and upstate New York. "Part I, Destination Dakota Territory" describes Loren's multifaceted family from all of the above backgrounds and finds them as homesteaders in Minnehaha County, 'Dakota' ĘDakota Territory, South Dakota ̈. "Part II, Norway to Minnesota" is 'all Norwegian' and finds Mavis' families all homesteading in Lac qui Parle County in west central Minnesota, some having spent months or years in Goodhue County on the eastern border of the state before reaching their final Vesterheim. This book is the second of six about these families, each containing the same core of material to set the stage for individual family presentations. Book Two provides descriptions and stories about Winge-Hegre ancestors and descendants of Mavis' families who settled in Lac qui Parle County, Minnesota after beginning their lives in the Trondheim area of Norway.
