Ringebu Historical Society aims to promote interest in local history
and culture, collect and preserve everything that has information of
significance for Ringebu's history and can tell how people lived and
worked here throughout the times.
The society was founded i 1932. Since 1977 a periodical named
«Hemgrenda» have been published annually, containing articles about
everything Ringebu: From poetry to biographies, from everyday life to
dramatic events, about those who stayed and those who left. The
society also publishes books; like the transcriptions of parish
records from 1696 and 1898 (17 volumes) and court records (2 volumes)
between 1664 and 1756. All publications are in Norwegian.
Ringebu Historical Society is an historical society, not a
genealogical society. However, many of our members are also
genealogists, so if you have questions about your Ringebu ancestors
you are welcome to send us an email and we will be
happy to pass it on.
