WHAT IS A STEVNE? A convention or meeting. We hold our stevner in September at various Midwest locations. We bring our extensive, varied, and ever-expanding collection of research materials for our registrants -- which are often in use until the wee small hours of the morning. Our library includes numerous resources for Solør genealogy research as well as general Hedmark materials and Finnish/Swedish Finnskog regions.
We often congregate on Wednesday for 3 days of focused genealogy research. Featured events on Thursday and Friday may include banquets, Norwegian crafts demonstrations, interesting speakers, tours of local areas of interest, films, and trading the latest Ole and Lena jokes. What to Bring to THIS event
Laptop, family research, and flash drive for the genealogy room
Lag member obituaries
Homemade treats and Norwegian goodies for the hospitality room

Some photos of our past stevnes:
Chris Falteisek playing the keyboard for the opening songs.
Webmaster perk: Shamelessly showing off photos of your family at the stevne. Rod and Randi Kurth, enjoying the Thursday banquet.
You just had to be there . . . LeAnn Hookom, LaVonne Hookom, and Connie Olson goofing off at the banquet.
And then a miracle happened -- and we managed to get a photo with almost all of the Solørlag members who are here at the stevne.
