Norwegian Heritage

Doris has had a deep interest in family history and pioneer life, and is proud of her Norwegian ancestors.  She tries to keep in contact with relatives in Norway.  Even Doris' hobbies were Norwegian . . .  working hardanger embroidery, and baking Norwegian foods.

 

Most of Doris' writings have a Norwegian flavor.  And no wonder!  Her roots are in Norway.  Her great grandparents were from the Toten area; her grandfather was from Hurdal; her father was born in Aalesund, and her husband Hans was born near Kristiansand.  Growing up, she heard the Norwegian language, learned Norwegian customs, and ate many Norwegian foods.  And now in her home she has many beautiful Norwegian items, and follows many of the customs she grew up with.
