There is a nice blog on Norwegian genealogy called Norwegian Genealogy and then some it has some great resources and tools (for example, cheat sheets for the parish book headings and list of causes of death), and I would highly recommend a virtual stop-by for anyone doing Norwegian research. I particularly like the blog, because the author brings together a good number of websites that you might not otherwise find.
I wanted to remind everyone that FamilySearch has some great free webinars on Scandinavian research. Some of the webinars are pre-recorded (they can be found in the Learning Center-But note, they have recently “upgraded” their Learning Center and its search functionality does not work very well and there does not appear to be a browse by Country capability.) Others webinars are in real-time which allows you the opportunity to ask questions of the instructor. For example, over the next two months FamilySearch is offering four live webinars:
- Tue, 9 May, 11:00 AM MDT, Norwegian Emigration: The Experience
- Wed, 24 May, 2:00 PM MDT, Databases for Swedish Genealogy
- Tue, 13 Jun, 1:00 PM MDT, How to Find Ancestors in the Digitalarkivet
- Wed, 28 Jun, 11:00 AM MDT, Introducing Danish Probates
New webinars are posted monthly, and can be found here. I highly recommend these webinars: they are from some of the top people in the field!
Welcome to my blog! The purpose of this blog is to pass on news on the field of Scandinavian and German Genealogy, and to present tricks and tips to make you a better genealogist.
