ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Norwegian families came from villages and municipalities who settled in separate communities. They settled on farmland in the middle west, maybe they sent letters home to neighbors who came and settled at the neighboring farm.
After the shutdown of Vigsnes Copper Mine in 1896 left hundreds of people from villages to the mines in Great Falls, Montana.
We know that the southerners had a large floor puts communities in New York.
Over the last fifty to sixty years, the vast majority who emigrated from Karmøy settled in New Bedford or Seattle, and most have worked to be fishermen. The entire crews of some vessels were often from Karmøy.
Gradually this is changing.
Commuting to the fisheries in America from Karmøy is now ending. It is said that from the old municipality Skudenes more people traveled to America than from any other municipality in Norway.
So this is no insignificant story.
