Dorothy, I would suggest you join the Illinois Norwegian mail list, as this list is for posting obituaries of people who came from Norway to America as it says on the site. <http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/intl/NOR/NORWEGIAN-OBITUARIES.html> NORWEGIAN-OBITUARIES-L lists2 Topic: A mailing list for the posting of obituaries of Norwegian immigrants that came to America. Obituary lookups are not addressed by the list at this time though this may be added in the future. Margit List Admin On Nov 20, 2006, at 9:08 PM, geemadee wrote: > Margit-- > Thanks for your reply.
