I am at a brick wall for my paternal great-grandfather, Rudolph Vogt. I would like to find out anything I can about his Norwegian roots but I have come up empty. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Les,

The problem may be that the Norwegian records are under his patrynomic name so you would need to know his father's name. Have you tried the Digital archive? I did not find any results with his name but this appears to be a record for his wife:

Maybe someone with more Norwegian experience can help further.

I formatted Rudolph's profile. The references tag should be immediately after the sources heading.

Hope that helps!

Hi Peggy

Thank you for the formatting tip and the link to Sophie’s Norwegian Census record. This helps me tie her parents and sister Christina together in the right place and time.

The problem is I don’t know Rudolph's father’s name or where he’s from in Norway.
I believe in Norway the surname Vogt suggests some kind of position of responsibility and they were near a city so they may have dropped the patronymic early… Maybe...I don’t know. Most of Rudolph's children were given German or English names except Ragna so they weren’t very traditional in that sense. 
Four generations later I named my son Erik to restore some Norwegianness. :-)
Thanks for the help.

There are some very knowledgeable people involved in the Norway project. If they don't see your question, you can contact them here:
