Usage Tips

These are the parish registers for the parishes in Andebu 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.

Over the years, the registers switched back and forth between being consolidated (all parishes in one set of registers) and being separate by parish. You may have to check several of the links above to find the set of registers you need to search.

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.
