The Seven Lag Stevne is a yearly gathering of descendants of Norwegian immigrants to the U.S. and Canada who came from seven areas of Norway (from parts of Buskerud, Oppland, and Telemark counties)  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.  In 2015, activities will take place at the La Crosse Center, 300 2nd Street South, La Crosse WI.  Use your GPS to plot your route to this great summer get-together!

We are hoping that a full day of genealogy and classes on Saturday will appeal to members who have had difficulty attending stevner in the past that have been held only on weekdays.  If you have never  attended a stevne before, and a weekend event appeals to you, I encourage you to set aside the weekend of July 10-12.  This is a great way to learn about your immigrant ancestors.  If you have friends whose ancestors came from areas of Norway that are not part of the 7-lag, feel free to invite them to attend the class presentations.  The classes promise to be of interest to anyone whose ancestors settled the prairie.


Invite your family and friends to the 2015 7-Lag Stevne!
Spread the word to members of your church or heritage organization!

Due to the enthusiastic response to both the Vesterheim tour and the River Boat Dinner Cruise, we will arrange for the Vesterheim tour buses to return in time to make the 5:00 cruise.  If you have been hoping to participate in both the Vesterheim tour and the River Boat Dinner Cruise, you can make reservations for both, and be assured that you will have five hours at Vesterheim and still make it back from by 5:00 to enjoy dinner on board the La Crosse Queen.  The 5:00 dinner cruise has been opened to the general public, so don't delay in making your reservation if you are interested in going.
