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

SALT LAKE CITY -- FamilySearch International, the University of Troms, and DIS-Norge announced today a joint initiative to transcribe the 1875 Norway Census for free online access. It is the only Norway census that has not been indexed and the first to be tackled as a global, Internet-based effort. Volunteers who can read Norwegian are being sought to complete the project at www.familysearch.org.
