FamilySearch: 1875 Norway Census, etc

NOTE from DearMYRTLE: The following was just received from our friend Paul Nauta at FamilySearch.org. Please address all inquiries to support@FamilySearch.org .

1875 Norway Census

In the first week of December, we will start indexing the 1875 Norway Census. This will be a large segment of the census for rural areas of Norway, but not the entire census. FamilySearch’s Historical Family Reconstitution unit has joined forces with the University of Tromsø in Norway to complete this project. The university is indexing the census records for the urban areas of Norway.

Pass the word along that anyone interested in Norwegian genealogical research is encouraged to help by volunteering as a FamilySearch indexer.
