Everyone is welcome to registering sources, for their own use or to publish in the Digital Inn. 

If you are transcribing sources for your own usage, you are of course free to do this as you like. However, we recommend that you transcribe the information as accurate and authentic as you can, whatever the goal of the registration is. This way you always have the "original" and can edit and transform copies of it as you please.

There exists two standards for transcribing data into structured form, HISTFORM for census data and KYRRE for parish register data. Unfortunately, they only exist in Norwegian. 

Contact us before starting

If you are considering publishing your transcriptions in the Digital Inn, please contact us beforehand. This way you can inform us of your work and how you will proceed, and we can give you advices.
