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)

 

Where to find the 1875 Norway Census?

 

Fee Sites

  • Ancestry

    Ancestry has the Norway, Select Census, 1875 and their records came from FamilySearch, so have the same benefits and limitations of the FamilySearch collection (the records are currently from Akershus county, Hedmark county, and Østfold county in Norway)

  • MyHeritage

    MyHeritage has the 1875 Norway Census and this appears to be the same data as Ancestry and FamilySearch with records currently from Akershus, Hedmark, and Østfold. MyHeritage has excellent translation services which might help bridge any language barriers as you search these records.

 

Free Sites

For more information on how to best search the 1875 Norway Census (and other Norwegian records), I’d recommend you follow a native blogger who has invested a lot of time in the research. I follow Martin Roe Eidhammer at Norwegian Genealogy and then some and there are probably others as well. Best in your searches, whether they’re fee or free!

US Census Records – Fee or Free Comparison Chart

0

Here’s a comparison chart of US Census Records available at FamilySearch and some partner websites including AmericanAncestors, Ancestry, FindMyPast, and MyHeritage.

Each title links to a record collection. FamilySearch is the only entirely free collection but you can use the other links to get a feel for the look of each site. AmericanAncestors links to a general search window and you’ll need to select the database, “United State Census …”

“Index only” means a site provides a name index, which is information extracted from the handwritten census record. This usually includes every name in the census, the census year, the place the record was collected, the age and gender of the family member, and possibly information about other family members living at the residence, etc.

“Index and Images” means the site provides the index and an image of the handwritten census record. The image allows you to verify the extracted information, and possibly see other census information not extracted for the index.
