Cemeteries

The Genealogical Society of Norway (DIS-Norge) has started a country-wide project to index and take photos of cemeteries throughout Norway. The project began in April 2004 and has the ability to include: a full transcription of the tombstone, a photo of the tombstone, and sometimes a transcription of the burial records recorded by norwegian church vergers.

This database, which includes more than 2.4 million registered entries, contains many Sør-Trøndelag cities and parishes; including cemeteries located in Hitra and Orkdal. The project is updated frequently, and shows what records are being published to the website by place. The database can be searched in English, and can be searched by cemetery, name or place. While it is not a fully comphrehensive database, it has excellent information for those who are searching in these specific areas.
