Norwegian American history

NAHA // Genealogy Resources: "The NAHA Archives can be a rich resource of information for family historians and genealogists. Although the focus of NAHA is the Norwegians after they arrived in America, and is historical in nature rather than strictly geneaolgical, you may find its resources helpful in your research."

Welcome to NAHA!: "The Norwegian-American Historical Association was organized October 6, 1925, by a group of far-sighted Norwegian Americans who sought to establish a national center for the collection and preservation of historical material.

Theirs was a practical as well as thoroughly professional endeavor to provide funds for the publication of interesting books by talented scholars, who by careful research and interpretation would describe the American experience of an immigrant people then firmly rooted in the New World.

The Association has enjoyed success and gained the recognition and respect of an international scholarly community. In fulfillment of its purpose, the Association has published nearly one hundred books of scholarly merit; promoted Norwegian-American historical research and literary work; and helped maintain and develop archives of Norwegian-American historical material located on the St. Olaf College campus. This rich program has attracted to the Association a membership of 2,000 citizens from all walks of life. "
