This has been a very cool week. I always knew that my family changed their name to Wilson when they came over from Norway, but I never knew what it originally was or where they were from. After hiring a genealogist from Norway, I discovered the name was originally Neshaug, the exact farm they came from, and that they emigrated to Minnesota and then finally ended up in Canada where I grew up. The coat of arms is from the area, Hjartdal, where they came from in Norway. Can't wait to visit!
