The 7+ Lag Stevne is a yearly gathering of descendants of Norwegian immigrants to the U.S. and Canada from eight areas of Norway (parts of Buskerud Fylke, Innlandet, Akershus Fylker and Telemark.   Each of these areas is represented by an organization, or "lag" that works to maintain cultural ties to its ancestral homeland and provides support for genealogical research.
This year's theme emphasizes the yearning and value immigrants placed on acquiring land. Indeed, no immigrant group made better use of the Homestead Act than the Norwegians.  Join us as we explore the yearning that brought so many Norwegians to our shores and gave them the determination to acquire land and build new lives for themselves and their descendants in America.
