2013 Fall/Annual Meeting

"Giants of the Earth" - Ballard House

Spring Grove, Minnesota

October 19, 2013

Ballard Houise Giants of the Earth



Highlights of the 2013 annual meeting included Ole Gamme's presentation of a DVD of the Bjørkvik archive to Giants of the Earth Heritage Center in honor of Georgia Rosendahl,  who has done so much for the Kontaktforum Emigrant Identification Project.  The membership voted to make a donation to Norway House.  By-Law changes were passed.  A new secretary was elected. There was a discussion of the 2015 trip to Norway.
After a great lunch, Bill Fried of "Giants" explained each of the murals in the room painted by Sigmund Aarseth.  The rain stopped long enough for some to take a "crisp" walk down to the park to view the statues there.  Professor Jonathan Storlie explained the many ways in which DNA and genotyping can be used to explore your ancestry and the 23andme genetic testing program.
Thanks to Georgia Rosendahl for inviting the lag to meet in Spring Grove, and for the hospitality shown by everyone at the Heritage Center who made it a great day for all who attended!
