Record Content and Use

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

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:

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 M86624-7 is for marriages from Horten, Vestfold, Norway, on the blue leftside dropdown menu, select the appropriate county (Vestfold), parish (Horten), type of register (Parish register (official)).

For example: if you were searching for Otto Christian Hansen (fictitious name) married on 8 July 1899 to Cristine Karlsdatter (fictitious name), then you would choose the year range from the register results (i.e., Horten: 1896-1904), Parish register (official)). From the next screen, select the Type of record (Marriage records) and the specific year (1899 (270)). Otto Christian Hansen and Cristine Karlsdatter would be listed on page 272 in the original register.
