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

Bygdeboker for Sør-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.

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.
