Dear Mr. Lindquist,
Thank you for contacting History Hub!
The National Archives, as well as other institutions, including local public libraries, provide free access to Ancestry.com record collections.You may also consider searching FamilySearch, which is public free access.
We suggest that you visit a FamilySearch Family History Center, local library, or heritage society. Not only do they provide access to genealogical records, but they may have genealogists that may be of some help to you. You may visit https://www.familysearch.org/locations/ to find a family search location near you.
Both FamilySearch and Ancestry have records for the U.S. and Norway that may help you in researching your family.
Additionally, you are welcome to visit the National Archives in person to conduct research. Or, if you are unable to visit us in person, you may hire a private researcher to conduct research for you. A list of private researchers is available at https://www.archives.gov/research/hire-help.
Best of luck in your research!
