Ready to dive into Norwegian Genealogy? Here is all you need to start tracing your ancestor's journey back to Norway - the emigration history, the sources, where to find them, and the methodology. It is also helpful for those who have already started doing Norwegian Genealogy.

The first part of this book, "A Guide to Norwegian Genealogy, Emigration, and Transmigration" gives an overall view of the Norwegian emigration history before taking you to Great Britain, which was one of several routes for transmigration. Further, you will get an insight into what happened when Norwegian emigrants arrived in North America.

The second part is a description and a guide to sources in the United States, Canada, and Norway. What information can you find in genealogical sources in the US and Canada that show the way back to Norway? What clues do they contain, and how could they be used to find traces of them in Norway? The book also thoroughly covers Norwegian sources, like emigration records, censuses, church records, probates, mortgage registers and mortgage books, land registers, seaman records, military records, and bygdeb ker (farm books). Finally, the whole book finishes with a chapter about genealogical methods. In the appendix, we have a Norwegian-English dictionary.

This book has a proper source citation, so use the sources to find more information about a topic.
