Norway > Beginning Norwegian Research

Begin with family and home sources.

  • Talk to living relatives of the immigrant ancestor. 
  • Search for names, dates, and places on letters, post cards, photoes, certificates, family Bibles, obituaries, diaries.
  • Search for records in the US where your ancestor lived:  such as US census records, church records, land records, Vital records - anything that will list name, age, and possible place of birth.
  • Organize the information you find, and record it on predigree charts and family gourp records.
