Two busloads of Norwegians visited the town of Hendricks, Minnesota on Thursday and Friday to explore the city's genealogy. At the heart of their visit was the Singsaas church, a building located four miles outside of town that was built by the original Norwegian settlers to the area. 31 immigrants traveled from the Singsaas region of Norway to Lake Hendricks and founded the church in 1874, a full 26 years before the city of Hendricks was founded.
The Norwegians visiting Thursday, all members of a genealogy society based in Norway called Dis-Norge, walked the ancient cemetery looking for names of their own relatives who may have traveled to this area of the country more than 100 years ago.
