Danish Heritage

Icelandic Heritage
Member Erna Olafson will tell stories about her Icelandic heritage, based on her visits to cousins in Iceland and in the vibrant, Icelandic community in North Dakota. The Icelandic-American diaspora have gathered yearly at the Icelandic State Park and museum in Mountain, ND to celebrate our history.  Erna and her family have taken part five times since 1956, when church services were still in Icelandic.
