Norwegian genealogy

We have Linda Greethurst giving a program on Norwegian genealogy. She has give us two sites to help with research.

The Norwegian genealogy site is https://www.digitalarkivet.no/en/. The /en/ is the English version.
 

Another site is OJ’s homepage. https://otjoerge.wordpress.com/norwegian-american-dictionary.

The dictionary site helps when working on DigitalArkivet.no.

Many of the Digital Arkivet records have not been indexed, so you may have to browse records. You will need to register for a free account in order to use the site.

Norwegian counties are like states in the U.S.

There should be an official parish register and a copy of the official parish register that was kept at a separate location. Once or twice a year, the keeper of the copy and the minister were supposed to compare the versions, so there might be additions at the end  of the book.

Linda Greethurst recommends “A Research Guide for Norwegian Genealogy” as a valuable resource for researching Norwegian family history. It is published by The Norwegian American Genealogical Center & Naeseth Library in Madison, Wisconsin. Their website is www.nagcnl.org.
