Norway > Oslo City & County

Oslo is the capital and largest city in Norway. Founded around 1048 by King Harald III of Norway, the town was largely destroyed by a fire in 1624. The Danish-Norwegian king Christian IV rebuilt the city as Christiania (later spelling Kristiania). Oslo, then an alternative name, became official again in 1925.

The city of Oslo was established as a municipality on 3 January 1838. It was separated from the county of Akershus to become a county of its own in 1842. The rural municipality of Aker was merged with Oslo on 1 January 1948 and simultaneously transferred from Akershus county to Oslo county.

The urban municipality (bykommune) of Oslo and county (fylke) is the same entity, making Oslo the only city in Norway where two administrative levels are integrated.

Church Records

Photos of churches in Oslo

The Norwegian Church (Den Norske Kirke) kept the vital statistics of the population. See Church Records for the contents and in-depth descriptions of the records. The links to the records available at the Family History Library are found in the individual parish under Parishes and Congregations in Oslo City Section.

The National Archival Services of Norway maintains a website, Digitalarkivet.uib.no, in which you can search in transcribed source material for free. Images of the original church books have also been placed there. The Digitised Parish Registers interface can be used in English, Norwegian (Bokmål), Norwegian (Nynorsk) or Samisk (Davvisámegiella). However, the records are written in Norwegian.

Later church records which not have been microfilmed by the Family History Library can be found at Digitalarkivet. They are for Bekkelaget, Botsfengselet, Bredtvet, Bøler, Christi menighet (Dissenter), The First Methodist Church (Dissenter), Døves (deaf) congregation, Fagerborg, Grefsen, Hauge, Lilleborg, Majorstuen, Mangelrud, Markus, Matteus, Nordberg, Nordstrand, Ris, Røa, Sofienberg, Tonsen, Torshov, Tøyen, Ullevål sykehus, Vaterland, and Vålerenga.
