Usage Tips

These are the parish registers for Hægebostad and Eiken, 2 of the parishes in Hægebostad clerical district (since 1753, before which, they were part of Kvinesdal clerical district).

They 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.

Fjotland was also a part of this clerical district for a time, but its parish registers are covered by source:

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.
