What is in the Collection?
This is an index to baptisms in Norway for the years 1634 to 1927. This index is not complete for any particular place, region or time period. This collection may include information previously published in the International Genealogical Index or Vital Records Index collections.
For details about the contents of these records and help using them see the wiki article Births and Christenings 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 FamilySearch 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 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 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)). Otto Christian would be listed on the first page in the original register.
