Linkas Diary

A Norwegian Immigrant Story in Word and Sketches

Marvin Slind & Gracia Grindal, Editors

Caroline Dorothea Margarethe Keyser, known as Linka, married Hermann Amberg Preus in 1851. That same year they emigrated to Spring Prairie, Wisconsin. Before she emigrated Linka’s circle of family and friends included some of the most prominent individuals in Norwegian society. Her diary captures her involvement in the Norwegian community, her travel to America, and her life as a pastor’s wife and a mother.

Dr. Slind completed this new translation of the Linka Preus diary in collaboration with Eva-Kristin Urestad Peterson and Ragnhild Hjeltness.

Linka Preus also captured moments in her life with sketches. Dr. Grindal's commentary to the sketches is an attempt to reconstruct a history of those moments or events.
