    Some important points
  • You can search on first name, surname, domicile and registration year(s). A search on first name will not only search on first name to the principal character in the parish registers but on all persons that is registered with a first name. Persons that have first name and surname registered together like Groomsmen will not be included in the search.

  • You can also search only municipalities. If you choose Hammerfest and funeral you will get all registered funerals for Hammerfest.

  • You can limit the search by declaring a lower or/and upper year. Man kan begrense søket med å angi tidsperiode. Man kan oppgi øvre og nedre tidsgrense eller kun en av delene.

  • You can apply the same rules as with search on the censuses.
