Bygdelags are organizations comprised of descendants of persons who emigrated from specific regions in Norway to North America. The Norwegian-American Bygdelagenes Fellesraad is an umbrella organization for all bygdelags in North America.

On their homepage you can find contact information for the area where your ancestors came from in Norway. Each lag has a genealogist who can provide lag members with guidance about researching their ancestry.
