The content of this booklet was originally published in Norwegian as "Similengjar: Gards- og Ætte-Soga frå eldste tider til 1865," an article in the Tidsskrift for Valdres Historlielag [Magazine of the Valdres History Society], Volume 7, 1925.

Countless Canadians and Americans with roots in the Valdres region of Norway can claim a blood relationship, however distant, to the once prominent Semeleng family.  Through the Semelengs they can trace their ancestry back to royalty and nobility in the viking era. The family takes its name from the Semeleng farm, located near the south-east end of Slidre Fjord, across from Røn in Vestre Slidre parish. The farm name has taken various forms over the centuries, depending upon pronunciation and the phonetic spelling that became so popular during the Norwegian national awakening of the 19th century. 

The name has also been written Semelenge, Semle, Simling, Similinge, Simmilengji, Summelengji, etc.
