Most of the norwegian army was recruited on a territorial basis so most of the companies had territorial names. Occasionally these names are insufficient when identifying the recruiting district so the district name has been added. The military rolls list officers and other ranks for each military unit. The oldest rolls are very sketchy but in the rolls from the 18th and 19th centuries much detailed information is given. The preservation of the rolls has been a matter of chance and for certain periods of time and for certain districts or units the rolls may be missing. Regiments, battalions, companies, and squadrons were named after the districts wherein the men had been conscripted. The conscription districts varied from time to time.

There are many different types of rolls in these military records. The most important are: 1. Lists of names (stamruller) submitted by the parish clergymen to the conscription authorities containing males of various ages, over accrual through birth or arrivals (immigration), and deductions through death or removals (emigration) etc. 2. Rolls (mannskapsruller) recorded by the conscription authorities (bailiffs, magistrates, clerks, etc) of all males of serviceable age, with other information. 3. Rolls (kompaniruller) recorded by the units (companies, squadrons, batteries, etc) of all ranks enrolled at the unit.

Sjøinnrulleringen means enlisted as a sailor. In 1803 every boy, when he reached the age of 16, had to appear before the draft board to be registered, receive a medical examination, and receive a certificate to show he was registered. Registers were kept of these enlistments. These registers are in four groups: 1) 16 years of age; 2) over 16 to 36; 3) over 36 to 50; and 4) over 50 (ekstra ruller). The men wer classified as: 1) able-bodied; 2) not able-bodied; 3) used to the sea; and 4) not used to the sea. These records can vary as to content but usually list: given name, surname (fathers name), age, birth place, place of residence, and often the body build and hair color. Sometimes the record contains information on the persons previous experiences on a ship such as where and when he sailed and the name of the ship. There are several types of rolls: ekstra ruller, hovedruller, annotasjons ruller, kommando protokoll, and styrelister. If a man voluntarily enlisted he was given special privileges. In times of war these sailors were required to serve in the Navy.

Abbreviation used in the contents notes are: komp. = company; nasj. = national; bat. = batalion; brig. = brigade; gev. = enlisted (gevorbne); inf. = infantry; art. = artillery; detach. = detachment; m.m. = with more (med mere); div. = division; kav. = cavalry; rid. = rider; reg. = regiment.
