What is in This Collection?

The census is handwritten on printed forms. It is arranged by county, clerical district, farm number, and residence. The original records are preserved in the regional archives throughout Norway. The records are in Norwegian.

The 1875 census was conducted beginning December 31, 1875, and all the information recorded should pertain to that date even though some information was gathered at a later date. This census includes 99% of the population and contains the persons name, sex, whether resident or temporary resident, those absent from the parish and their location at the time of the census, position in the family, occupation, marital status, year of birth, place of birth, religion if a person did not belong to the state church, and other miscellaneous information.

The Norwegian government created the census primarily as a source of statistical information on Norway’s population.

The 1875 census is fairly reliable, depending on the knowledge of the informant and the care of the census enumerator. Information may have been given to a census taker by any member of the family or by a neighbor. As a result, some information may have been incorrect.
