The 1875 census
in the Digital Archive
On this page you can search in the entire 1875 census for Norway,
notice however that the census is not yet complete. Nearly all of the material has been registered by
The Norwegian Historical Data Centre (NHDC) and they have concentrated most of the registration work on the census
lists from the north of Norway. If you look in the menu to the left you will see a list of all the counties
represented in the census. You can open up a county by clicking on the name and then get a list of municipalities
available in the census.
Please read these pages before making a query:
There is also a very useful
page and as you are advancing the search, you will find more help pages.
When searching in the entire census, you start with one variable
(for instance "given name") and narrow the search down as you go along. You can also search on farm names either as
farm listed in the census (click on the link "Search for farms") or as persons living on the farm (select "Name of farm"
as variable on this page).
