Tuesday Open House Summer Seminar

June 25 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm PDT

$25
Mindekirken

This year we are in preparation for the bicentennial for the 200th anniversary of the first organized group from Norway to North America. Some may not know that the Norwegians were great colonizers and have traveled many places in the world long before 1825 and the ship Restauration.

This seminar will explore the arrivals beginning with the Vikings and moving toward the settling of Norwegians in Canada and the United States. Some of the arrival times are surprising and those after 1825 came in waves. Topics will address the first arrivals together with some narrative history of women who arrived during the Colonial Era. This will be followed by immigration waves and how they traveled in sailing ships and steamships. The seminar will close with a panel addressing various times and how our immigrants assimilated into American Society.
