Norwegians, Swedes and More: Norway to Minnesota, Olson-Finstad
"Norwegians, Swedes and More" provides a synopsis of our ancestral family components; Norwegians and Swedes as well as those of French, German, English, and Canadian descent 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" [Dakota Territory, South Dakota]. Part II, Norway to Minnesota, is "all Norwegian" and finds Mavis' families homesteading in Lac qui Parle County in west central Minnesota, where they reached their final Vesterheim. This book is the third of six about these families, each containing the same core of material to set the stage for individual family presentations. Book Three provides descriptions and stories about Olson - Finstad ancestors and descendants of Mavis' families after beginning their lives in Hallingdal and Eidsvoll areas of Norway.
