Record Description

This index is an electronic index for the years 1666 to 1927. It is not necessarily intended to index any specific set of records. This index is not complete for any particular place or region. This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.

Botne, Vestfold, Norway, on the blue leftside dropdown menu, select the appropriate county (Vestfold), parish (Botne), type of register (Parish register (official)).

For example: if you were searching for Otto Christian Hansen (fictitious name) died on 2 December 1871 and buried on 11 December 1871, then you would choose the year range from the parish register results (i.e., Botne: 1836-1877, Parish register (official)). From the next screen, select the Type of record (Death and burial records) and the specific year (1971 (422)). Otto Christian Hansen would be listed on page 425 in the original register.
