This Norway Genealogy website was first created in June 1997 to assist those who are researching their ancestors from Norway. The website has grown from about 15 pages then to over 200 now.  The goal is to maintain links to the many growing and changing Norway-related genealogy resources that are available on the Internet. Imagine how this changes from year to year!

Through this web site you will find links to Norwegian bygdeboker, census, emigration, farm and parish listings, history, lookup volunteers, message (query) boards, and a variety of other useful links.

Are you NEW to Norwegian genealogy research?  Researching in Norway is different from researching in the U.S. Please start HERE for some guidance and some facts you should know.


VOLUNTEERS - If you own any books useful for Norwegian genealogy and will do look-ups, please contact the webmaster. Volunteers are always needed.

CURRENT LOOKUP VOLUNTEERS - Please keep us apprised of any changes in your email address. Also, if you know that one of our lookup volunteers has passed away, please contact the webmaster. Thanks!

NEW:  The 1910 Census for Norway is now online and is free for everyone. Check it out!
