Digitalarkivet

I’m still intending to post here more often but was in Vancouver for work for a week. I’m back now, though, and intend to get back on track (eventually!). Before I left, I discovered some new databases posted on the Norwegian site, Digitalarkivet. This site contains thousands of digitized Norwegian records covering census data, births, marriages, confirmations, emigrations, tax lists, and more. I’ve visited this site in the past, but the “digitised parish records” feature was recently added, and this has provided a wealth of new primary records on our Norwegian ancestors. The records are sorted by county and then parish, so it is fairly easy to look through the images for Sogn og Fjordane County, Innvik Parish, and locate many of our Roberg/Aaland relatives. You can now find a number of these records for Anders Roberg, Svend Roberg, and others posted in my genealogy database.

  1. In 1999 I found a record of a great grandfather leaving through the Port of Oslo. The title of the record was ‘Digitalarkivet: Emigranter over Kristiannia havn’. I can no longer find a way to access these records. Can you explain how you get into the Digitalarkivet?

  2. You should be able to find the records at http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/WebMeta.exe?spraak=e by clicking the appropriate county and then Source Category.
