March 14, 2014: The advanced search for individuals is improved! Now the search form comes with menus to select source categories, geographic area and time period for the transcribed sources. In addition, you can search for two or more persons simultaneously. This way you will be able to search for a bride and groom in the wedding lists, and the child and parents in baptisms or confirmations, or even unrelated persons living on the same address in a census list. With over 20 million records to search in, this new functionality is quite an improvement! Please read the guide before you start searching . And do let us know if you find errors!
February 19, 2014: We have started to publish the scanned images of the 1875 Census. First out is the census lists from Sogn og Fjordane county since there is so few transcriptions of this census from that county. You find the census lists in Select source
February 6, 2014: The scanned images of the original 1865 Census are now available! You can access the scanned census lists in Select Source . So now you can see the actual forms that are the basis for the transcriptions of the census, and you will be able to verify a transcript yourself. The digital images of the 1891 Census are also made available in Select Source .
January 29, 2014: Updated: After the software for the debate forums and the log-in-service was upgraded, some of you have experienced problems with signing in or submitting an entry in the debates. Here is what you have to do to fix this:
To log in: Go to the log-in-page or go to the register-page and follow the instructions. Use the same log-on-information you use in the debate forums. By signing in to the Digital Archives, you synchronize the account. The procedure is only necessary this one time. Once you are logged in, you can now go to the debate forums and log in there as usual.
To submit entries: You must empty your browser's cache. If the cache is not emptied, the browser will not look for new code and you will run old code and scripts on the updated site, causing a lot of trouble for yourself. If you are unfamiliar with emptying cache, you find a useful guide here.
January 27, 2014: The debate forums and the log in-service will be unavailable due to necessary maintenance from noon today until this evening. We expect the services to be inaccessible for 4-6 hours. The other services like searching the data and browsing the scanned protocols are not affected by this and will be accessible. However, you will not be able to adjust date-format, submit comments etc in the transcribed material. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
