Norway Encyclopedias and Dictionaries


Encyclopedias may provide information on all branches of knowledge or may treat a specific topic comprehensively, usually in articles arranged alphabetically. They often contain information of great interest for genealogical research, including articles about places, prominent people, minorities, and religions. They can give information about diverse topics such as record-keeping practices, laws, customs, commerce, costumes, occupations, and archaic terminology.

The Family History Library has general knowledge encyclopedias in the Norwegian language and Norwegian-English and English-Norwegian dictionaries. The encyclopedias and dictionaries are listed in the Family History Library Catalog under:

  • NORWAY - ENCYCLOPEDIAS AND DICTIONARIES

Also see the "Language" section.

There is extensive information on Norway in Wikipedia the online Wiki Encyclopedia.
