*You can view [http://kirkefoto.blogspot.com/2009/06/fylkesvis-oversikt-over-kirker-som-er.html photos of churches] in Norway.
 
 
 
*You can also view a [http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/WebFront.exe?slag=vis&tekst=album-eng.htm&spraak=e Photo Album of Farms] as part of the [http://digitalarkivet.uib.no/cgi-win/WebFront.exe?slag=vis&tekst=introduk-eng.htm&spraak=e digital archives] of the Norwegian National Archives. It contains patron-submitted photos of 1900-era farms. There is a link in the album between a farm photo and the respective farm in the 1900 census list, so that one can find information on the farm and household.
 
 
 
*During the 1500-1800’s it was very common for the Norwegian people to use what is called a patronymic naming system. They would take the father’s given name and add “sen/son” or “datter”. Others chose to use the name of the farm they were associated with as their last names. This really was an address, but some of these farm names were continued through many generations and have become last names.
 
 
 
*In 1923 a new naming law (Navneloven av 1923) came into effect, and people now had to choose a family name. The change from patronymics to family names had already started in the mid-1870; the cities had started a little earlier and the smaller parishes a little later. However, the law was approved 1923. <br>In 2003 another law was put into practice. It was now again legal to choose a patronymic or matronymic name.
 
 
 
*Farm names are very important in locating people in Norway. Through these names you can find parishes and then your ancestors in the parish registers.
