Friendly Viking

We want to help folks gather the stories of their older family and friends so they can be saved and shared with generations to come.

This site is prompted by the recordings I made of my father, Ingvald as he told stories about his commercial fishing days. Sometimes the youth of today can't relate to what life was like then, so it's nice to hear it from the real fellows who lived it.

This site will grow to add how to information to record your own family histories.

Ingvald Ask

Here you can see and hear Ingvald sharing some stories of trolling in the fifties. And more!

The galley table on the Agile. Ingvald is sharing his lunch with his first grandchild.
