Cemeteries


Since 2005 a national cemetery database called Gravminner i Norge (Tombstones in Norway), have been in service. This is searchable cemetery records with photos. It is operated by the genealogy association DIS-Norge and is open to everyone. This database contains 3 different kinds of information. Firstly it contains computer based databases with cemetery registers, received from local church administrators. Secondly paper-based cemetery records are being digitized, so they can be searchable. Third part of the project involves photographing and digitizing information written on tombstones on Norwegian cemeteries.
