Usage Tips

These are the parish registers for Vennesla, Øverbø, and Hægeland parishes, which became Øvrebø (later Vennesla) clerical district in 1805. 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 Archive makes available newer registers that were not part of the Family History Library microfilms.

While Øvrebø (Vennesla) clerical district was not formed until 1805, this source covers the records for its parishes starting about the 1740s. Earlier records for these parishes 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.
