Church Records[edit | edit source]

Namsos clerical district contains parish registers from the parishes Namsos, Vemundvik and Klinga (Sævik). In 1859 it was decided that Namsos should be come a clerical district. In 1865 it was separated from the older Overhalla clerical district.

Vemundvik and Sævik parishes were added to the new clerical district. In 1860 Sævik (Klinga) parish was divided with the district north of Bjørumselva and Namsenfjorden becoming a new parish called Vemundvik. In 1863 Lille Andvik from Fosnes parish was added to Vemundvik parish. In 1885 it was decided that Sævik parish would be called Klingen (Klinga). For earlier records see Overhalla (Ranem) and Fosnes clerical districts.
