I want to draw your attention to a group on Facebook that is dealing with genealogy from Romsdal.
Romsdal is the name of a traditional district in the Norwegian county Møre og Romsdal, located between Nordmøre and Sunnmøre. The district of Romsdal comprises the municipalities of Aukra, Fræna, Midsund, Molde, Nesset, Rauma, Sandøy, and Vestnes. You can read about the name, geography and history of Romsdal on Wikipedia.
In this blog I deal with concepts that I hope has relevance for the entire Norway. Nevertheless, I have lived in Romsdal most of my life and If I am asked to define a geographical area of “expertise” I would say it is Romsdal.
