Many People Helped

While much information at this web site including information regarding the Winge (Vinge) family is from my own research, I have used information from others as well.  Sometimes the text is lifted directly from another researcher's work and sometimes I combine multiple pieces of information from many sources so it creates a more complete story or timeline.

I usually try to give credit directly in the text when I take a sizable amount of text directly from a source.

Certainly 2 sources that have been very helpful are:

    Dennis R. Winge's two books; "The Green Pastures of Vinge" and "In Search of  a New Scandinavia".  Dennis has also been kind enough to correspond by e-mail and provide some pictures.
*Dennis donated 2 of his books to the Skatval Historical Society.  I took these books to Skatval in September of 2005.

    Loren H. Amundson and his book "Norwegians, Swedes, and More - Norway to Minnesota, Winge-Hegre, Book Two". ISBN 1-58939-673-1 Published by Publishing Inc.
