There are several ways to find relatives in Norway or in the United States. Try entering the surname that you are researching in one of the search-engines listed below. If you find potential relatives, write them a letter and then follow up with a telephone call about a week later.
All In One is a compilation of various forms-based search tools found on the Internet.
Yahoo's People Search for searching telephone numbers as well as e-mail addresses.
Searching for People covers many different search techniques.
Your Family allows you to search the web to find out if a relative has a web page!
Reunion Hall is dedicated to bringing together high school alumni from around the world, and to re-link former classmates. It can also, of course, be used for genealogy purposes!
Seeker Magazine is another internet database devoted to reuniting high
school alumni, lost relatives, etc.
is a Norwegian Internet search engine. I have created an interface
in English that will allow you to use Kvasir to search for homepages of
potential relatives. Kvasir's links to homepages primarily consists
of those who use SOL - a Norwegian Internet Service Provider, but it also
includes a few others who use other ISP's. Even though the results
will be displayed in Norwegian, this search engine is quite easy to use.
You can either type in the surname that you are researching in the search
field below, or just click your way to the surname of your choice. (Start
by clicking on the first letter of the surname and a long page will load
up with links to the home pages of persons whose last name starts with
the letter that you clicked).
You can also use the Euroferret search engine (my favorite choice) to do a search by clicking on the logo below:
Unfortunately only a small fraction of Norwegian
e-mail addresses are available on search engines. However, there is always
the possibility that a relative might be listed, so if you find a potential
relative, send an e-mail and see what happens!
Kvasir's Search Center is in Norwegian, but you can scroll down to the search field for "E-post og hjemmesider" (e-mail and homepages) and enter the surname that you are researching. (You do not need to change the drop-down menu that says "Kvasir personkatalog"). Who knows, perhaps a cousin of yours in Norway has an e-mail address and a homepage?
Advanced E-mail search - Even though it is based in the US, Yahoo's
advanced e-mail search can be used to search for Norwegian e-mail addresses.
Enter the last name that you are researching and then enter NO (for Norway)
in the country field.
Unfortunately my schedule does not permit me to answer
individual requests for assistance with genealogy research
