"Researchers and archivists in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway have created several databases containing transcripts of historical, nominative sources such as censuses and ministerial records. In this way they continue a century-long tradition of record keeping that tracks virtually every Nordic citizen. The characteristics of the databases differ from country to country, however, requiring different research strategies in each. This article reviews how the data bases are built, what they contain, and how they can be accessed by the worldwide community of scholars."
