A little genealogy...in Bergen?

I'm way overdue for a trip to Norway to do some genealogy work, and so that is today's theme for Place of the Day.  Wish I had more time and that money grew on trees...guess I need to keep looking harder.

Bergen area - Norway

Was the capital of the Kingdom of Norway through the Middle Ages. Sites to see (when you're not doing genealogy) are St. Mary's Church from the 12th century, and Bryggen, one of the only original surviving neighborhoods within the city. Mountains surround the town so if you're adventurous you can make the 1000 foot climb and enjoy the view. And if you travel in June, you might even catch a Grieg concert.
