From the Inside Flap:

Lovingly researched and written by Rolf Erickson and Audrey Berner-White, Nvra-Erickson: A Sigdal Family traces the dramatic social history of a Norwegian family back to Nvra, the original family farm located in the Sigdal Valley of Norway. Beginning with the earliest known ancestors, Jon Jonson Lvnes and Guri Jrgens-datter, learn how the farm and family progressed through the early generations. Follow sixth generation members Ingeborg Nvra and Erick Olsen as they immigrate to America in 1867 to eventually settle in Lessor Township, Shawano County, Wis-consin. Included are numerous translated letters to and from Norway between Erick and his family and friends. John Nvra, Ingeborg Olsen's oldest brother, and his family immigrate to America in 1861 and settle in Mendota, Minnesota. Back in Norway, Nvra, the family farm, is later taken over by another of Ingeborg's brothers, Torger Nvra, and is passed down through the generations to the present. Ingeborg's sister, Helene Nvra, her husband, Thor Thortensen and their family immigrated to America in 1873 and eventually settled in Shawano County, Wisconsin. Meet the Bergan, Jahren, Klgstad, Nss, degaarden, Strm, Swanby and Snju families, plus many more.
