(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 209: At Norway's Riksarchivet

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).    

Here is a picture from our recent Royal Caribbean cruise (Norway-France-Ireland-England-Scotland-Norway):

On 11 May 2012, Linda and I enjoyed an Oslo tour day with Torill Johnsen, who is a Norwegian genealogy blogger (see  

We visited the Riksarkivet in Oslo, the National Archives of Norway.  In the book area, Torill quickly found the Voss bygdebok (farm book) and she and Linda posed for this picture.  I had, of course, extracted a great deal of information about Linda's Norwegian roots from the Voss bygdebok back in 1999 using microfilm at the San Diego Family History Center (it's still there on permanent loan, I hope!).

This visit with Torill got our European vacation off to a great start!
