“My book Lars and Martha Larson from Valdres Valley, Norway, to Vernon County, Wisconsin was recognized with an “Award of Excellence” from The Heart of America Genealogical Society and Library, Inc., in Kansas City, Missouri. It also received the award “First in the State” from the Wisconsin Historical Society and Wisconsin State Genealogical Society.

“More recently it was chosen as a reference by Dr. John Philip Colletta in his lecture series for The Great Courses. He also uses it in his conference lectures across the country.

“Numerous first person interviews, countless photos, more than 2000 end notes, maps, newspaper clippings, and extensive index are worth more than just a genealogy designation. The story of why and how the emigrant couple left Norway and what the accommodations were while crossing the Atlantic and traveling to Wisconsin is worth reading. It is a family history with emphasis on history.”
