What I know about Norway is about the same as most people outside the country, who have not traveled there. Here is an opportunity to learn more about the land, from whence my ancestors emigrated. And, the more I learn, the more I can be prepared for traveling there, to physically see the land of my forebears...

I would say that, most likely, all of my great grandparents came through Bergen.
For most of my life I have wanted to visit the land of my forefathers & foremothers...
I live in a state where the major league football team is called "the Vikings." Their logo is the helmet of a "Viking" with it's horns. And NO, there has been no evidence of any horns on a genuine "Viking" helmet.

Inspired by the libretto lines from an “underground cabaret” written shortly after the World War II invasion of Norway on April 9, 1940, lyricist Finn Bø — in collaboration with Arild Feldborg and Tobias Bernhoft — wrote “Norge i rødt, hvitt og blått,” but not until the end of the war in 1945. The melody, which was now “resurrected” for peaceful purpose, was penned from “across the border.” Swedish composer Lars-Erik Larsson’s catchy march-like tune — actually commissioned by the Swedish Government to stimulate the sale of war bonds (Försvarsobligationer)(1941) to strengthen the Swedish Defense Department — soon caught on in Norway as well, but was quickly banned by the occupation forces and NS (Nasjonal Samling, the National Unification Party).
About this sound "Ja, vi elsker dette landet" (In English: "Yes, we love this country"), also known by the title "Song For Norway", is a patriotic anthem, which has been commonly regarded as the de facto national anthem of Norway since early 20th century, after being used alongside Sønner av Norge since the 1860s. The lyrics were written by Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson between 1859 and 1868, and the melody was written by his cousin Rikard Nordraak sometime during the winter of 1863-1864. It was first performed publicly on 17 May 1864 in connection with the 50th anniversary of the constitution. Usually only the first and the last two verses are sung.

The Norwegian Hardanger fiddle is a traditional styled violin design from the very beginning to be much more ornate than the more common violin. It is made with much more ornate art work on the surface of the fiddle. As well as the sound coming from 8 or 9 strings, where 4 of them are set underneath the fretboard to vibrate seperately from the commonly played strings on top.
