|Welcome to the Ringerike-Drammen Districts Lag Website!|
We are what's called a bygdelag: basically a group (lag) of people that share the same ancestral areas in Norway. For R-DD our ancestors hail from one of nine kommuner (communities) in Buskerud Fylke (county): Ringerike, Modum, Øvre Eiker, Nedre Eiker, Hole, Drammen, Lier, Røyken and Hurum. For a complete list of cities in each Kommune click here or click on any of the Kommune names or coats-of-arms above to learn more about the area.
In 1916 the Ringerike Bygdelag was formed so we are planning a 100th anniversary in 2016. We will be hosting the annual Stevne (convention), printing a commemorative book and planning a trip to Norway. We would love to have you join us. Membership is reasonable and comes with a few perks including our quarterly newsletter, The BREV (letter) and access to our database of member ancestry. You'll be surprised how many of our members you could be related to!
Scan our emigrant log. If you think your ancestor's name is on it, become a member for 1 to 5 years and obtain access to all the data we have on file. In addition we have genealogists who are ready to help members find that long lost relative - free of charge.
