Immigrant Stories

In 1999, the NIA and the Norway Times, announced a contest which had as it’s prize–a round trip to Norway. Immigrants and/or their relatives were invited to submit the stories of their lives in the “colony” in New York.

One Hundred submissions were received, some with photos. Additional stories come to us regularly. In this space, you will find new stories from our archive – and hopefully, stories submitted by you, our readers and contributors. Enjoy these stories--and consider sending us your/your family's own story.
