Down is a screenshot of where I want to make changes to all three facts. Using Renee’s advice to go to Places and correct/merge, I have to remember the three cases (Not so easy) to work with, and search for them. (Not so easy). Surely that's not how we want it in a modern family program?
To elaborate on this further. For the past three years, I have mostly worked at FamilySearch Central, where some time ago there were approx. 2000-3000 people where there was new information and with whom I worked. For special reasons that have their background in newly digitized copies (with an incredible amount of errors) of Norwegian church books, the mentioned number was increased to approx. 98,000.
If you know how to get to Places, then it’s such a big operation that you just don’t do it. Then you correct directly, and then a lot of used place names arise.
If you want to read about the mentioned digitized Norwegian church books, look further below.
Registered church records from Ancestry, MyHeritage and FamilySearch
In October 2020, many of the lists of baptized, ordained and buried from the church registers from 1815 onwards were searchable in the Digital Archive.

In 2017, the National Archives entered into a partnership with Ancestry, MyHeritage and FamilySearch (AMF). Our partners invest a lot of time and resources in making Norwegian sources more accessible. The collaboration also contributes to important Norwegian sources being made more quickly available. This collaboration was started at the request of AMF, and not as a commission from the National Archives. Nor has the National Archives paid for these registrations.
The good collaboration the Swedish Archives already has with volunteers has made it possible to complete registration of church registers for the period 1801-1814. Now the efforts of Ancestry, MyHeritage and FamilySearch have supplemented the work the volunteers have done by registering the church registers after 1814.

We have registrations that extend further into the future, but these are blocked due to privacy concerns. Read more about blocking rules when registering church records on our website
Church registers that still lack registration
Not all registrations from the AMF are published. There can be various reasons for this.
If there was already a registration carried out by volunteers at the Digital Archive from this time period, we have not published the registration from AMF.
There are also some church registers which are being registered by volunteers, but which are not yet finished. These will be completed and posted on the Digital Archive in due course. We have therefore chosen not to publish the registration from AMF for these church books. This is because we want to avoid having multiple registrations from the same source/list type as much as possible.
There are also church records that were scanned and published on the Digital Archive after AMF started its work. These church books have not been sent to AMF for registration.
Reporting of errors and deficiencies
It is natural that there will be errors and possibly deficiencies in these registrations. The possibility to report errors and deficiencies in this material is no longer possible.
Unfortunately, the National Archives does not have the resources to proofread the registered material. However, it has been opened up so that others who wish to proofread a source/list type can do so. We would greatly appreciate such proofreading being carried out, as this will help to increase the quality of the published material. Those who wish to contribute with such proofreading are encouraged to read more about this on our website
