The Emigration Information Database is made with special attention to user-friendliness, and extensive use of pop-up windows with field explanations. Here you will also find user manuals which goes through the steps involved in using the database and also registration of data in the database.
We have compiled two user manuals for using the Emigration Information Database on the web site. Both manuals are in their first revision, and will be continously updated and improved. Latest revision of all manuals can always be downloaded from this page.
If you have comments, suggestions to improvements or find errors in the manuals, please notify us, som we can update the manuals for the benefit of all users. A special thank to Jostein Molde who has forwarded corrections to the manuals which now are implemented. The manuals are lifted up from preliminary to first revision.
