I am so pleased at the professional job I received with Liv. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering her as an expert. She did a quality job from beginning to end and I will certainly request her should I need further research. She was very prompt with her research considering the very limited amount of background information that I was able to provide. I have been researching for quite some time with no results, after Liv pointed me in the right direction, I was able to find so much information. Thank you so much for helping me find my Norwegian ancestors. I am looking forward to your English how-to book on Norwegian ancestry. Steve Torkelson, Minnesota USA
