Usage Tips

These are the parish registers for the parish of Asker, but may also cover Vestre and Østre Bærum up to the mid 19th century. For later Bærum parish registers, see Vestre Bærum, Akershus, Norway. Kirkebøker and Østre Bærum, Akershus, Norway. Kirkebøker.

The parish registers include records for the state religion (Lutheran) but also for "dissenters". Many of these registers were microfilmed for the FHL library, and later digitized and made available online through the Norwegian Digital Archives (Digitalarkivet). The Digital Archives make available newer registers that were not part of the Family History Library microfilms.

For the years 1916-1918, you may have to check both the Digitalarkivet links above to find the records you are looking for.

Note that Digitalarkivet includes searchable transcribed records for some of the registers - the transcription appears to be ongoing. The search has limited flexibility and does not appear to support soundex at this time.
