The Hendricks Trilogy
This book combines 3 incredible documents into 1.
First is the book From Singsaas to America by Jens Winsnes of Trondheim. It is his Masters Thesis and defines the conditions that led to the migration and includes a table of all Singsaas to America through 1905.
The Immigrants Trek - The document written by the actual wagon train in 1873 that led to Hendricks - their own words!
Hendricks Pioneers or what might better be named "After the Trek" as it gives information on what those first settlers endured as told by their descendants.
The first 2 documents are historic, and not to be changed. However, there is no reason that the third should not be improved and updated as more is found out about that first generation stories and photo's over time. The link below is precisely the file that is available in book form on lulu.com. Anyone wishing to update and improve the story of "their" family section.
