Without the past, there is no future.


“Without the past, there is no future.” The origin of this phrase remains a mystery, but the message is clear―understanding where we are going comes from knowing where we’ve been. Stories of one’s family heritage are passed down from generation to generation, but as with all storytelling, details are often lost along the way.

Technology has changed how we go about discovering our family’s history and reconnecting with our past. In fact, in the digital age it’s never been easier to organize and document memories. Now, with the help of Befør, Norwegian Americans have the unique opportunity to tell their family’s story in a medium that can be preserved and shared for generations to come.
