About 1870 Norway Census

The 1870 Census

The 1870 Census was taken on December 31, 1870 but was only carried out in urban centres and trading posts within Norway, i.e. in cities and in provincial and small coastal towns. Records contain details such as the individual's name, year and place of birth, marital status and occupation. Only in Kristiania (now Oslo) were the lists sorted alphabetically, by street names.
