Arkivverket: Has reached 80 million personal names in the Digital Archive

Translated from the Norwegian, a little awkwardly. Arkivverket: Has reached 80 million personal names in the Digital Archive. “The reason for the gratifying increase is the National Archives’ multi-year collaboration with the international genealogy companies Ancestry, MyHeritage and FamilySearch (AMF). These have helped to make the priest’s entries in church books up to the end of the 20th century searchable. In return, companies can also publish the information on their websites. For over 20 years, many enthusiastic volunteers have written from the sources the National Archives has published in the Digital Archive. This information has then been published in the Digital Archive, so that it becomes searchable for everyone and even more easily accessible.”
