Telelaget's Library

 

Telelaget has a great library of research books available.  Although most are in Norwegian, basic information about births, deaths, and family members can be relatively easy to understand.  Translators are available in the genealogy room at our yearly stevne to translate more difficult passages into English. This inventory was taken in 2014. Those with an "E" after the year of publication were published in English.
