A Matrikkel is a public index to Grunneiendommer (Basic Properties) in Norway.  In rural Norway it is a record or a list of farm properties.  The Fams are usually listed in topographic order and include a Gårds nummer (Farm number) and Bruksnummer (Division number).  These indexes include

  • The name of the farm and the land that belonged to each farm, the value of the property
  • A Panteobligasjon (Mortgage bond)
  • A set value in inherritance cases
  • A set public tax, based on the value of the property
