Immigration records show over 600 people came to the US with this name!. They were all from Norway and Sweden!. If you can trace back to the name of your immigrant ancestor, we can try to help you find out exactly where they came from!.

It doesn't really have a nationality, but you could call it Norwegian or Swedish or Danish!. All three countries have plenty of Wiigs, but Norway may lead the pack!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
