Home                                                                                                                             Norwegian Research Sources   


The following research sources are specific to the Trøndelag region of Norway.


Bygdeboker for Nord-Trøndelag Fylke.  List of bygdeboks available from the University of North Dakota-Grand Forks. This is one of the largest collections in the U.S. although the Trønderlag of America probably owns more recent books specific to Trøndelag.

Digitalarkivet: Emigrants from Trondheim 1867-1930. A searchable database of the emigrant records of those who emigrated from Norway by leaving from Trondheim, beginning with 1867 records. Emigrants from this port came from many areas north and south of Trondheim so not all were necessarily from Trøndelag. This free database comes from the Archives of Norway.

Digitized Parish Records for Nord-Trøndelag. This is a growing database from the National Archives of Norway. These are in Norwegian.

DIS Nord-Trøndelag. Genealogical society specifically for Nord-Trøndelag. Their website includes links to many useful resources. Most are in Norwegian

Land property tax register 1723 from Stod (Nord-Trøndelag county)

Lånke HistorielagHistorical society specifically for the Lånke area (Hell).

Nord-Trøndelag map showing the current kommuner (municipalities).

Nord-Trøndelag Message Board - A Rootsweb/Ancestry message board for posting queries in search of information about Nord-Trøndelag ancestors. Messages posted on this board will also appear on the Trondelag mail list.

Searching the 1865, 1875 and 1900 census. Census database from the Norwegian Historical Data Centre. Search by year on partial names and by province. The 1865 and 1900 censuses are complete here.

Slektsforskning Stod - Searchable  database for Stod parish in Nord-Trøndelag which includes all records from about 1600 to 1750.  Put in a first name and approximate date and you will get all persons with that first name, along with their father's name and farm they were born on. Another click and you can see all records pertaining to that person; i.e., census, marriage, baptisms, deaths and probates if any.

Statsarkivet i Trondheim - The regional state archives contains records regarding most matters registered or processed by a governmental authority at the local or central level (church records, census, maps, heritage). You can visit the archives to use the materials yourself or you can write to ask for assistance. Please note that they are understaffed and requests for the archives to do your research may take a long time to get a response. The archives has moved to a new location which is listed below.

Trøndelag Mail List - A Rootsweb mail list for discussing and sharing of information and genealogy research about our ancestors and immigrant families from the Trøndelag region of Norway (Nord-Trøndelag and Sor-Trøndelag). Additional information about the mail list is found on their web pages.

Trønderlag of America - The Trønderlag of America is a bygdelag (lag) — an organization or association of emigrants and their descendants from the Trøndelag region (middle) of Norway and includes both Nord- and Sør-Trøndelag. Lags were established in the U.S. to maintain the ties to the homeland and provide a place for those emigrants to assemble at least once a year.  Trønderlaget was established in 1908 and will be celebrating the anniversary of its founding on August  9, 2008 in Fergus Falls, MN. The Trønderlag of America website also contains an extensive genealogy resources page.
