The Registration of Data

In the fall of 1987 we began an extensive registration with the assistance of Fet library. The funds for this work were provided by the National Library Board, Akershus County Culture department, the School Board of Oslo, Akershus, Fet School Board and Fet Culture committee. The registration was conducted in co-operation with the 'bygde'(municipal history) book editor for Fet municipality, Jan E. Horgen, who does all the work with 'bygde' books on computer. As the registration became complete all of the data was transferred to his machine and used in the writing of the 'bygde' books.

This overview shows the registered material at LHRC as of July 1st 1996.
