  1. Could you refer me to a Genealogist that could research my Uncle Walter Swensen’s family that came from Farsund and Lyngdal? Please let me know what the price would be, I do have a lot of information to help reseach. Tusen tak.

    1. Elizabeth,

      Thanks for visiting the OnGenealogy directory. You’ll need to call or email the Archive directly in order to get a response from them. Here is their contact page with a phone number to call for assistance.

      Best with your research,
