Members of the Wold family emigrated from Laerdal Parish in Sogn og Fjordane County, Norway and settled in Greenwood Township, Vernon County, Wisconsin in the 1860s. I have included information on spouses, in-laws, cousins and siblings in 17 appendices which tell the story of the connection between these two communities. Sources include original church records in both Norway and Wisconsin, cemetery transcriptions, census records, plat maps, published and unpublished genealogies, personal interviews, etc. I am responsible for any errors which may have crept in and welcome your corrections.
