The second version of the digital 1910 census was released 29. March 2011. There are some major and minor alterations in 488 of the 659 municipalities listed in the census (74 %).
With the release of version 1 1. December 2010, Kristiania had not been through the extensive control like the census returns from the other municipalities. This control is now completed and a new version of Kristiania is published. Some buildings at Grev Wedels plass and Myntgaten, earlier placed under a fictive census district no 018 (Vår Frelsers parish), is now correctly placed under census district 160 (Festningen). Some persons leftout are now inserted in their correct places.
In Kristiania the census districts are numbered within each parish and not the city.The parish names are now included in the record for the census district so it is easier to see the location for the buildings and persons.
The census districts no 5-12 (of 12) in Sandefjord were missing in the transcriptions. They are now registered and published.
The laste 4 residences and their 13 persons in Vossestranden in Hordaland county were duplicates and actually belonging to Kvam. They are now removed from Vossestranden.
Although the intention of the 1910 census was to have a date of birth for all persons, this are often not the case. Many persons did not even know their own or the households birth dates. Thousands of persons are instead registered with year of birth or, even more common, their age. Often this type of information was not a certain fact, so it has been written with a "ca" or similar.
Until now, age has been listed in the Remarks field. It has now been transferred to a separate Age field. Simultaneously, the field for date/year of birth is filled with estimated year of birth. Thousands of persons are therefore easier to find based on birth year in this version!
For example: If a person is listed in the source as "ca. 40 aar gml." (transcribed in the remarks-fields), the age field is now updated to "40 ca", and the field for year of birth is updated to "1870 ca".
It will be easy to spot the information that is estimated and not original. When searching the data, the estimated data will be included in the search.
From version 2 of the 1910 census, all the IDs used for persons, buildings, districts etc. are to be regarded as permanent.
