About us

Norwegianhistory.no is an online magazine with articles on Norwegian history – focussing on the many aspects of Norwegian farm history, the old Norwegian farming society, and its everyday life.

Publications from Norwegianhistory.no are primarily aimed at today’s Norwegians, descendants of Norwegian immigrants in The United States of America, Canada, and other parts of the world – and others interested in Scandinavian and European history – and the old Norwegian farming society in particular.

Norwegian libraries and archives are full of stories, photos, and other historical information, all in a language that the descendants of Norwegian emigrants from the 19th and 20th century no longer speak or understand. Norwegianhistory.no has as its primary purpose, to share from this treasure trove of knowledge, through the use of the English language.

The website is registered in Norway. The physical location of the website’s data and program files is in the United Kingdom.
