Fee or Free 1875 Norway Census

0

The 1875 Norway Census (Norwegian: Folketellingen for kongeriget Norge den 31te desember 1875) began December 31, 1875 and is expected to include 99% of the population of Norway. Information was gathered by census takers throughout the country who spoke to any family member living at an address or a neighbor if family wasn’t on-site. Some people were enumerated twice because they were temporary residents in one locale but their names were also given at their home residence.

Some information contained in the 1875 Norway Census includes:

  • Name

  • Gender

  • Resident or Temporary Resident

  • Whether Absent from parish and location at time of Census

  • Position in family

  • Occupation

  • Marital Status

  • Year of Birth

  • Place of Birth

  • Religion (if not the state church)
