In Trunks, Hands, and Hearts: What Norwegian Immigrants Brought to the United States

April 17, 2021 | 7:30 p.m. (CT)

Location: Online program through San Diego Sons of Norway Valhall Lodge

Vesterheim is giving an online presentation for San Diego Sons of Norway Valhall Lodge. Vesterheim Registrar Jennifer Kovarik will explore the immigrant experience through stories associated with artifacts in Vesterheim’s collection. Between 1825 and 1980, nearly one million Norwegians left for new lives in America. We’ll consider the reasons for leaving, what they brought, and where they settled.

This is an open meeting. Visitors wishing to attend can register here.
