Searching for a Relative from Norway

Recommended Posts

Tobias Backman

Hey forums.

 

I've found out that one of my ancestors was born in Kristania, Norway (which I suppose is Oslo?) 23rd July 1904. I've found the name of his parents through church registries but I can not be sure of his parents until I find the birth registry. Does anyone know where to search for him or where to find it? I've tried the normal search function on digitalarkivet with no prevail. His name was Erling Henry Fredriksson, his parents were (probably) Johan Edvard Fredriksson and Johanna Sofia Johansdotter (both of them born in Sweden). 

 

Thank you anyone taking the time reading this and I'd be happy for any help!

I have not found anything on Digitalarkivet. I put a picture in the first post, which is from Ör, Västra Götaland, Sweden.

So, how do you know he was born in Kristiania? Did the family live in Kristiania/Oslo for some time? Could they have been there in the 1900 or 1910 census? The photo is very low resolution and thus difficult to enlarge and read. Could you post a link to that document?

From this record - it seem to say he was not baptized (Ej døpt)

 

Yes. Does that mean that he was not documented whatsoever?

Difficult to say, they might have been in Kristiania for a short time. Not knowing where, it would mean going through all relevant churchrecords for Kristiania. But I tend to believe that he is not documented in Kristiania.

Oh okay, thank you for you help regardless. Seems I have to assume that the people he live with are his parents!

Do you have information about the family in later years?

Erling is my great grandfather. All I know about him is that he lived in Sweden (Västra Götaland) for a long time. He had at least one child in 1940 (my grandmother) and she was adopted by another family in 1945. My grandmother knows nothing about Erling at all. I found out that he died in Åmål in 1987. Apart from that I don't know anything about him.
