Download the 1886 and 1838 land registers as Excel-files

The 1886 land register for the whole country can be downloaded as Excel-files. The files are "zipped" (packed), i.e. the files must be unzipped before they can be used. Each file contains the land register for all the municipalities in a province, except for the towns and the Finnmark province. The Hedmark province is devided into two parts, _a and _b, to get a more suitable file size.

The 1838 land register is only transcribed for the Hedmark, Buskerud, Telemark and Troms provinces and are zipped Excel-files.

File name explanation:
ma = land register
f= province
nn= province number, e.g. 01 = Østfold, 02 = Akeshus etc
.zip= zipped version
