Record Content and Use

For details about the contents of these records and help using them see the wiki article Deaths and Burials Vital Record Index Collections (FamilySearch Historical Records).

If an FHL film number is given in the entry for your ancestor, search for it in the 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 . Be sure to click on English (or the language of choice) from the blue bar at the top. Since Batch B04838-7 is for burials from 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.
