I can't thank you enough for the help you have been giving me. Apart from the actual links to my relatives, it is unbelievably useful to get the general tips you are providing about the Norwegian historical habits and records -- such as the types of records that can be found and the meanings of the words in the databases, You provided: " Documents followed by the "Søk" button are searchable. The "bla" button is to see the scanned document."
You listed so many other tips that are not only extremely helpful to me, but I'll bet would be useful to anyone searching for Scandinavian relatives and are floundering (like me).
Your generous sharing of your time and knowledge is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for including more detail on Jakob Wilhelm Dass. The Dass family has been studied extensively for many decades so there is a lot of available information. You might wish to check my tree on Myheritage for additional info.  Personally I think it would be important to investigate further the roots of Petter Dass in Scotland (the family Don Dass or Dundas)

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.
Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.
If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.
Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! This certification requires participation in a project related to the profiles you wish to edit. Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Also, check out our Volunteer Hub to see our projects that really need new members!
Let me know! I can help you figure out if there's a project and introduce you to the project leaders. Welcome aboard!

WikiTree is different because our goal is to have one profile per person, and that means we all work together as a BIG collaborative team!
What brings you to WikiTree? Do you have research you’d like to share? Are you interested in how your family fits into the big tree? When you confirm your email address, you’ll have an opportunity to volunteer and tell us about your genealogical interests.
Once you volunteer, one of our Greeters will be happy to confirm your membership, and you’ll be on your way!
Welcome to the family! We’re really glad you’re here.
