[#1469] Parish Maps

Recommended Posts

Gjest Sue Barham

Are there now, or have there ever been maps published that show the locations of farms and sub-farms within a single parish? It would seem that farms have retained at least a derivation of their original names to this day. In the 1801 Census, I searched and found the farm "Klosbadding" but the sheet that came up as Gardnavn "Ellingstad". Is there something like we have in America, where Tax lots (individual's property) are named and identified?

Small-scale maps of Norway can be found in the Topographic Main Map Series, Scale 1:50,000 (Series M711).The map sheets include: place names, buildings, churches, farms, administrative boundaries, roads, railroads, etc. Each sheet covers approximately 650 sq. km. A total of 727 sheets would be needed to cover the whole country.You may find info on the Norwegian Statens Kartverk and their services at [url="http://www.statkart.no/Their>http://www.statkart.no/Their maps will also be found in a few American book-stores etc. The official maps are published by Statens Kartverk (SK)
