In birth or christening records, if a surname is not listed for the child, the indexer often assigns the father’s surname to the child. This surname may not be correct. So if you are looking for a birth or christening, search by the given name of the child, adding parents' names and as much locality information as is permitted.

=== Finding the Original Source for an Entry in This Collection  ===
+
 
+
Each entry in this index has a source listed which includes a batch number. You will need to trace the batch number for the individual entry to learn its source. Please see the following wiki articles for more information on batch numbers:

*[[IGI Batch Number Descriptions]]

If an FHL film number is given in the entry for your ancestor, search for it in the [https://www.familysearch.org/#form=catalog&catSearchType=film_number Family History Library Catalog].

As an alternative to ordering a microfilm from the Catalog, you can search the digitized parish registers at the following link: [http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read http://www.arkivverket.no/URN:kb_read] . Be sure to click on English (or the language of choice) from the blue bar at the top. Since Batch C42346-1 is for baptisms from Horten, Vestfold, Norway, on the blue leftside dropdown menu, select the appropriate county (Vestfold), parish (Horten), type of register (Parish register (official)).
  
For over 30 years, volunteer indexers extracted this information from microfilm copies of the original records. In 2001, some of the entries were published on 2 CDs by the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the "Scandinavia Vital Records Index: Norway." This is an index of some births or baptisms throughout Norway. The index is not necessarily complete for any particular place or region.  
+
For example: if you were searching for Otto Christian Hansen (fictitious name) born on 2 January 1872 and baptized on 4 February 1872, then you would choose the year range from the register results (i.e., Horten: 1872-1877, Parish register (official)). From the next screen, select the Type of record (Birth and baptism records) and the specific year (1972 (001)).&nbsp;Otto Christian&nbsp;would be listed on the first page in the original register.<br>
