Check out the new 1891, 1900 and 1910 Norway census records at MyHeritage (announcement below) and then watch one of our webinars on Nordic research to learn how to find your Norwegian ancestor.
We’re happy to announce the addition of three important census record collections from Norway, from 1891, 1900, and 1910, to MyHeritage SuperSearch™. Added in collaboration with the National Archives of Norway (Arkivverket), these 6.8 million new records are rich in family history information.
The collections provide robust coverage for Norway’s entire population during a span of two important decades in Norwegian history. Two of the collections include digital images of the original historical records. This is the first time that Norwegian collections of such high quality are available.
With the release of these new collections, MyHeritage now offers approximately 34 million historical records from Norway, including census, baptism, marriage, and burial records. As the Scandinavian market leader for family history research and DNA testing, MyHeritage also offers 136 million records from neighboring Sweden and 105 million records from Denmark. MyHeritage is the only major genealogy company to provide its services and full customer support in all three Scandinavian languages, as well as in Finnish, and offers the greatest potential for new family history discoveries for anyone with Scandinavian origins. It also has the largest user base in Scandinavia and the largest collection of Scandinavian family trees.
With the exception of Ireland, no other country saw a larger percentage of its population emigrate to the United States than Norway. Search these new Norwegian collections to learn more about your ancestors’ lives, and enhance your family tree with fascinating family history discoveries.
