Church Records[edit | edit source]

Sandnes church.jpg
  • Records begin in 1691. Sandnes was then a parish in Høyland clerical district along with Høyland with Sviland chapel and Soma. Soma was discontinued in 1839 and was from then on included in Høyland parish. Sandnes became its own parish in 1880 and its own clerical district in 1914. These records are available on microfilm at the Family History Library.

  • Digital images of the church books are online at Digitalarkivet (Digital Archives).

Census Records[edit | edit source]






Court Records[edit | edit source]

The court records contain reports of civil and criminal actions, including the allodial rights, a system of ownership by which an owner has all rights associated with possessing a property. You will find names, dates, places, and relationships in these records. The records have no indexes, and therefore require time to study. They are excellent sources for genealogical research and at times you can find entire families through several generations. These records must be used in conjunction with the mortgage records, probate records, or other records.
