Project: Norway

Categories: Norway | Norway Project | Norwegian Projects

Welcome to the Norway Project!



This project is the effort of a group of WikiTree users interested in profiles related to Norway through history.

Project members can take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information. Members can join various sub-projects of specific interest or seek support from the project Leadership if it is believed a research topic is not adequately covered.

How to Join

Are you interested in the Norway Project?norway.gif


For each Profile:

  • All duplicates merged into lowest number with correct Last Name At Birth
  • All profiles containing appropriate source material
  • Relevant Categories added where required
  • Biography cleaned up and written, using the WikiTree Style Guide (can work with Profile Improvement Project for help)

In some cases, where there is dispute or there are issues that are difficult to resolve, for example, it may be necessary to manage change through an interest group. In these cases it might require a Profile to be Project Protected. Please discuss with a Leader if this is thought necessary.

In some cases, such as pre-1500 profiles, it may be necessary to gain assistance from a Leader to help amend profiles. Please discuss the requirement with a Project Lead.

To-Do or Task List

Be sure to post on that thread if you complete the task so we can take it off the list!

  • The regional, Counties and Municipalities have been set up. Currently, the Parish/Municipality structure is being revised on a Parish/Municipality, County, Country naming standard as discussed in the Norway locations proposal. The page Norwegian Location Category Structure (formerly "Categorizing Norwegian Parishes") has been reworked to reflect the new policy.
  • Establish general structure for the Norwegian Armed Forces through history
  • Norwegian Aristocracy and Nobility; some elements have been started but coordination is required.
  • Find sources for Unsourced Profiles
  • Establish a bibliography for doing Norwegian genealogy research. Add to bibliography (or Norway Resources)

Trouble with Names

Please take some time to read the page about Norwegian Naming Conventions and how to fit Norwegian names into the name fields of WikiTree.
