Using the 1910 Norway census? It was released to the public today and you can click here to search. The Digitalarkivet is a free public service from the National Archives of Norway. Before today, the only nominative (or detailed censuses publicly available were: 1801, 1865, 1870, 1875, 1885, 1891, 1900.
If you find working in the Norwegian language a bit intimidating, remember that you can embed a preferred language in the Digitalarkivet URL. For example:
This URL goes to the 1801 census page for the farm Qverk in Eger (Eiker), Buskerud, Norway, where my great-great-great-great-grandmother, Johanne Pedersdatter, is living with her son Peder Nielssen and his wife Berthe Wernersdatter:
If I insert “&spraak=e&” (no quotes) immediately after the first question mark in that URL, then I get the page translated into English:
I think that’s pretty nice of the Norwegians, yes? And now I’m off to go search in 1910 census and perhaps find some relatives who still live in Norway.
The Digitalarkivet has made it much easier to select the search interface in English, part of their major new site redesign. As seen in the image above, English is a choice in the upper right. It’s also easier to select databases for searches.
