03.01.2008 Due to heavy traffic on the server with the Digitised Parish Registers, the service is very unstable. If you experience problems accessing the site, please wait a moment and try again later. There has been a lot of attention to the news that all the microfilmed parish registers are now digitised and published, and this has created a very high traffic on the server. In a day or two, we expect that things have settled itself. In the mean time we must ask you to be patient.

The server is constantly monitored, so there is no need to inform us that the service is unaccessible. We will restart the server as soon as possible.

We apologise for any inconvenience!ASC


02.01.2008 All the microfilmed parish registers are now published on the internet! Close to 4,5 millions parish register pages are available in the Digital Archives. The material includes all of Norway as well as the Norwegian Church abroad, and covers the period 1600-1930.

Notice that it is only the microfilms that have been digitised. Parish registers that are not transferred to microfilm will be added later. These protocols will be digitised directly from the original. A technique that will be used in revisions of the images already published: some pages are missing others need to be retaken.

Please address any questions to and/or comments on this service to the debate forum for Digitised parish register.
