CAMAC from NORWAY

Journal by marbra

I am researching this name for a friend.He knows that his ancestors were from Oslo in Norway and has given me some names.

Thank you to all those who have given me ways to search for Norwegian ancestors.

I have been given information that Camac is not a Norwegian surname so the name or spelling must have been changed.

I will have to try to find out just what it was.

Norway census are free online.
Once you have established some names, dates and location this link to a Norwegian query board is VERY helpful, ask your questions in English, most of the participants are bi-lingual.
Best of luck.
