Family Genealogy

Probably the most important document for genealogical research is the census. The picture is of a 1845 Norwegian Census from the province of Sogn Og Fjordane. It has been translated into English. The only Norwegian words/abbreviations used are noted under comments at the bottom of the page. It is for my gg-grandfather Markus Anderson Dyrdal. The name of the farm is Indre Dyrdal (Inner Dyrdal). You will also notice that the name Dyrdal is spelled Dyrdahl on the census. My g-grandfather Sjur Markusson Dyrdal would be one of the unmarried men that was living on the farm at this time.
