Those with Norwegian roots will benefit from a new service offered through The Digital Archives. Scanned images of the actual parish registers are now being published online.
The microfilm department of The National Archives holds close to all parish registered delivered from the priests' office to The Regional States Archives, ie. nearly 11,000 registers with millions of microfilmed pages. According to their plan, all the material will be published by 2008.
The project has a good start. Read all about it, and even search the records, at http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read?idx_special=om
