I've been doing genealogy for many years but haven't delved very far into my Norwegian ancestors. I have found a few things on FamilySearch, but lately I've been trying to look up census records (on http://www.rhd.uit.no
) and have had absolutely no luck. Does anyone have any tips on using those databases? I'm interested in the mid-late 19th century.
Also, in a few records I've seen names listed like so:
Andreas Johannesen Hauger and Johanne Johannesdatter
Andreas Johannesen and Johanne Johannesdatter Hauger
And I was wondering what the "Hauger" signifies and why it appears sometimes but not always (if I'm following the correct people).
My family came from Ostfold and Akershus.
