In Norway there is a site called Cemeteries in Norway, which lists most cemeteries with information about: Birth, death and burial. Some do even have a picture of the headstone attached. The search interface on the site let's you search the whole country, or to narrow it down by different counties and or municipalities.

This How do I... article is a suggestion to how to best document your usage of this site.

Adding Cemeteries in Norway as a Repository

You can add Cemeteries in Norway as a repository by adding the following information:
   Name: Cemeteries in Norway
   Type: Web site


      - Web home: Path: 'Home page'
      - E-mail: Path: 'Contact address'

Adding a search result as a Source

I've now done a search for Last name that starts with Grav and First name starts with jul. I've now got a hit for Julius Gravås which is a relative of mine. I now click on the Correction link to get more information. And here is all the information I need:

I use Registrator as the Author, and the Om registreringen as the Publication information.

When I'm done entering this information, the Source entry window will look like the screen-shot.

When that's done and dusted, we need to add the Repository reference. I've usually set Media Type to Electronic and used the URL to the entry as the Call number.

If I find a picture of the head stone, I add that as part of the source's gallery. Adding an image should requires a source so you should add yourself as a source.

Using the Source on a piece of information

Next step is to attach your source, and I do the following in the 'Source Reference Editor':


  • Date: Here I use the Registrering ferdig as the date. In this case it would be 2007-03-00
  • Volume/Page: Does not apply
  • Confidence: 'Very high', as this is the 'definitive' source for this information.


  • I usually attach a note saying what I used this source for.

Now you should have a complete entry for a Cemeteries in Norway source. There is a possible to enter this information in other orders if you like, I've chosen the one that was easiest to explain.
