"Hovland's Hints" in the NAHA Newsletter

The NAHA Newsletter, issued several times each year to NAHA members, periodically includes articles contributed by NAHA Volunteer Dale Hovland. Dale has assisted many NAHA patrons who come to the Archives and need assistance in using the collections and other external resources, often in researching their family or in planning trips to Norway. Some of the key concepts and techniques used in helping these patrons have been summarized and documented in the newsletter for others who may do research on their own.

A list of the currently available issues of the NAHA Newsletter is listed here.
